I Will Trade the Old Cross for a Crown Recorded by Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver Written by Johnson Oatman Jr. and John M. Henson
G D7 G I shall not bear the cross through yon city C G When the burdens of life I lay down D7 G When I knock on the portals of heaven C D7 G I will trade the old cross for a crown
D7 G Though the cross often times has been heavy C G And all fortune on me begins to frown D7 G But how happy I'll be over yonder C D7 G When I trade the old cross for a crown
D7 G And I will trade the old cross for a crown D7 A7 D7 When the burdens of life I lay down G B7 C When those pearly gates for me shall swing open G C D7 G I will trade the old cross for a crown
D7 G Every cross that I bear for my Savior C G Will at last one day when He calls me lay down D7 G And all my sorrow will then be forgotten C D7 G And that's when I'll trade the old cross for a crown
