I Shall Not Bear The Cross Thro Yon City

I shall not bear the cross thro' yon city

When the burdens of life are laid down.

When I knock on the portals of Heaven

I will trade the old cross for a crown.

Refrain

Yes, I'll trade the old cross for a crown,

When the burdens of life are laid down.

When the pearl gates for me shall swing open,

I will trade the old cross for a crown.

Tho' the cross oftentimes has been heavy,

And oft fortune on me seems to frown,

But how happy I'll be over yonder

When I trade the old cross for a crown.

Refrain

Oft, my bark has been tossed on life's billows,

And each wave tries my vessel to drown.

But no storm cloud can harm me forever

When I trade the old cross for a crown.

Refrain

Ev'ry cross that I bear for my Savior

Will at last, when He calls, be laid down,

And my sorrows will all be forgotten

When I trade the old cross for a crown.

Refrain
