Bearing the Cross to Win the Crown

Play episode

I’ve tried numerous times to know more about the author of this great hymn, but not able to lay my hands concretely on any sound entry online. Whoever that may be, God bless his memory!


I’m just a pilgrim passing through this dark land
Nothing but trouble I have found
O Lord I need Thy light to guide me aright
Bearing the cross to win the Crown.

[Refrain]
Bearing the cross, bearing the cross
Bearing the cross to win the Crown
I need Thy light to guide me aright
Bearing the cross to win the Crown


Often my soul is burden heavy with care
Satan oft try to turn me ’round
But I’ll keep walking in the straight narrow way
Bearing the cross to win the Crown

Must Jesus bear the cross and let us go free
Until the sun of life goes down
Know there’s a cross for you, and there’s a one for me
Bearing the cross to win the Crown
