THE CROSS AND THE CROWN




Must Jesus bear the cross alone,
And all the world go free?
No, thereís a cross for everyone,
And thereís a cross for me.


How happy are the saints above,
Who once went sorrowing here!
But now they taste unmingled love,
And joy without a tear.


The consecrated cross Iíll bear
Till death shall set me free;
And then go home my crown to wear,
For thereís a crown for me.


Upon the crystal pavement down
At Jesusí piercťd feet,
Joyful Iíll cast my golden crown
And His dear Name repeat.


And palms shall wave, and harps shall ring
Beneath heavenís arches high;
The Lord that lives, the ransomed sing,
That lives, no more to die.


O precious cross! O glorious crown!
O resurrection day!
When Christ the Lord from Heaven comes down
And bears my soul away.


---Alternative verses---


Oh, precious cross! oh, glorious crown!
Oh, resurrection day!
Ye angels, from the stars come down,
And bear my soul away.
