The Way of the Cross Leads Home

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.

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.

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.

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.

~Jessie Pounds

I have no idea why, but for some reason this hymn has been running through my head all day long, so I though I would post it for all to read. The words and message are wonderful!

It's neat how God puts songs in our heads--I'm sure you'll see why He had you thinking about this one eventually!
