I'll Trade the Old Cross for a Crown

Misc. Gospel

 AAEA
 I shall not bear the cross through yon City,
 A7DA
 When the burdens of life are laid down.
 EAA7
When I knock on the portals of heaven,  
 DEA
I will trade the old cross for a crown.

Though the cross oftentimes has been heavy,
And all fortune on me begins to frown.
But how happy I'll be over yonder,
When I trade the old cross for a crown.

Chorus:
 AEAA7
And I will trade the old cross for a crown,  
 DAEA
When the burdens of life I lay down.    
 EAA7
When those pearly gates for me shall swing open, 
 DEA
I will trade the old cross for a crown.

Every cross that I bear for my Saviour,
Will at last one day when He calls me lay down.
And all my sorrow will then be forgotten,
And that's when I'll trade the old cross for a crown.

Chorus
 DEADA
Oh and I will trade the old cross for a crown.
