    Verse 1
    I must need 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

    Chorus
    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 Saviour trod,
    If I ever climb to the heights sublime,
    Where the soul is at rest with God

    Chorus
    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 3
    Then I bid farewell to the way of the world,
    To walk in it never more;
    For my Lord says ''Come,'' and I seek my home,
    Where He waits at the open door

    Chorus
    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
