T. Shepherd


MUST Jesus bear the cross alone,

And all the world go free?

No; there’s a cross for every one,

And there’s a cross for me.


The consecrated cross I’ll bear,

Till death shall set me free,

And then go home my crown to wear,

For there’s a crown for me.


Upon the crystal pavement, down

At Jesus’ pierced feet

Joyful, I’ll cast my golden crown,

And His dear name repeat.


O precious cross! O glorious crown!

O resurrection day!

Ye angels, from the stars come down,

And bear my soul away.
