171. The Way of the Cross Leads Home

  1. I must needs go home by the way of the cross,

    There's no other way but this;

    I shall ne'er get sight of the Gates of Light,

    If the way of the cross I miss.

    The way of the cross leads home,

    The way of the cross leads home;

    It is sweet to know as I onward go,

    The way of the cross leads home.

  2. I must needs go on in the blood-sprinkled way,

    The path that the Saviour trod,

    If I ever climb to the heights sublime,

    Where the soul is at home with God.

  3. Then I bid farewell to the way of the world,

    To walk in it never more;

    For the Lord says, "Come," and I seek my home

    Where He waits at the open door.

Something wrong? Let me know.
