If you would find the bet­ter land,
If you would reach the gold­en strand,
There to abide with Hea­ven’s throng,
Singing the ev­er­last­ing song,


Go by the way of the cross,
Go by the way of the cross,
Go by the way of the cross,
And you’ll reach home.

If you would reach the ci­ty gate,
Where ma­ny dear ones watch and wait,
Looking for you, with eyes of love,
Waiting to hear from you above,


If you would live in that glad place,
Where shall be crowned the saved by grace,
If you would rest for­ev­er there,
Always so hap­py and so fair,
