Look Away From The Cross

 

Look away from the cross to that glittering crown

From your cares weary watch look away

There's a home for the soul where no sorrows can come

And there pleasures will never decay

 

Look away (from the cross look away) look away (from the cross to the crown)

From the cross to that glittering crown (glittering crown)

Look away (way where you watch) look away (from the cross to the crown)

From the cross to that glittering crown

Though the burdens of life may be heavy to bear

And your crosses and trials severe

There's a beautiful hand that is beckoning come

And no heartache and sighings are there

 

Mid the conflicts of battles of struggles and strife

Bravely onward your journey pursue

Look away look away from the cross to that glittering crown

That's a waiting in heaven for you
