1 No cross for me, O blessed 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 hast op'd the gate of life eternal,
And Thou wilt let Thine own dear children in.

2 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. [Refrain]

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

4 "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!" [Refrain]
