375. Must Jesus Bear the Cross Alone?

1 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.

2 The consecrated cross I'll bear,
'Til death shall set me free,
And then go home my crown to wear,
For there's a crown for me.

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