let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me."

          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.

            Chorus
            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.

          I must needs go on in the blood sprinkled way,
          The path that the Savior trod,
          If I ever climb to the heights sublime,
          Where the soul is at home with God.

            Chorus
            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.

          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.

            Chorus
            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.
