The Way of the Cross Leads Home

Hymn lyrics by Jess­ie B. Pounds,
Music by Charles H. Gab­ri­el

Verse 1

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.


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.

Verse 2

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.


Verse 3

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.
