I'll Trade the Old Cross for a Crown  Misc. Gospel

[A]I shall [A]not bear the [E]cross through yon [A]City,
[A7]When the [D]burdens of life are laid [A]down.
When I knock on the [E]portals of [A]heaven, [A7]
I will [D]trade the old [E]cross for a [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.

And I will [A]trade the old [E]cross for a [A]crown, [A7]
When the [D]burdens of life I lay [A]down.[E]   [A]
When those pearly gates for [E]me shall [A]swing open,[A7]
I will [D]trade the old [E]cross for a [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.

Oh and I will [D]trade the old [E]cross for a [A]crown. [D]  [A]
