No cross for me,
O blessèd Lord and Savior?
No cross for me,
when Thou Thine own didst bear,
At midnight hour
within the garden kneeling,
While pitying stars beheld
Thy anguish there.

There is a cross,
and gladly I accept it;
There is a warfare
with a host of sin;
But Thou has op’d
the gate of life eternal,
And Thou wilt let
Thine own dear children in.



No cross for me,
when Thou the King of glory,
The Well-Beloved,
the Father’s only Son,
Didst with Thy blood atone
for all transgressions?
For Thou hast tasted
death for ev’ry one.

There is a cross,
and gladly I accept it;
There is a warfare
with a host of sin;
But Thou has op’d
the gate of life eternal,
And Thou wilt let
Thine own dear children in.



No cross for me?
shall I on Pisgah’s mountain
Content abide,
from care and trial free?
Ah, no, but thro’
the wilderness of sorrow,
Tho’ pierced with thorns,
my feet shall follow Thee!

There is a cross,
and gladly I accept it;
There is a warfare
with a host of sin;
But Thou has op’d
the gate of life eternal,
And Thou wilt let
Thine own dear children in.



“Take up the cross
if thou art My disciple!”
Deep in my soul
I hear Thy words of love:
“Take up the cross,
and when the war is over,
Home, rest, and crown,
with endless joy above!”

There is a cross,
and gladly I accept it;
There is a warfare
with a host of sin;
But Thou has op’d
the gate of life eternal,
And Thou wilt let
Thine own dear children in.
