By Franc Stockton Pummill
Should Jesus bear the cross alone?
It was our sins that nailed Him there;
He shed His blood that we might live
And in His heavenly glory share.
Shall Jesus bear the cross alone?
He suffered much for you and me,
To set us free from sin and shame,
He paid the awful penalty.
He said, "Take thy cross and follow Me,
Be neither faint nor lay it down,
Till in that city, bright and fair,
I ll place upon your head a crown"
He must not bear the cross alone,
For He has shown such wondrous love;
We all must daily bear our cross,
To wear a crown with Him above.
