Full Text

1 O brother, will you bear the cross
For Jesus everywhere,
Count all things gained for Him but loss
And all His favor share?

Refrain:
Bear the cross, bear the cross,
Ever stand by the cross alone;
Bear the cross, bear the cross,
For the blood-stained cross we own.

2 The glorious cross I love to bear
For Christ my blessed Lord;
Nor in the conflict will I fear—
He doth all grace afford. [Refrain]

3 How sweet will be the cross to you
When all is left behind,
When all things lost but Christ in view
Within thy heart enshrined! [Refrain]

4 Yes, Lord, for Thee I do forsake
All friends and earthly store;
I’ll suffer with Thee at the stake,
Rejoicing evermore. [Refrain]
