I Will Trade the Old Cross for a Crown

Song Author Johnson Oatman Jr. og John M. Henson Performer: Doyle Lawson og Quicksilver Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]I shall not bear the [D7]cross through yon [G]city
When the [C]burdens of life I lay [G]down
When I knock on the [D7]portals of [G]heaven
I will [C]trade the old [D7]cross for a [G]crown

Though the cross often [D7]times has been [G]heavy
And all [C]fortune on me begins to [G]frown
But how happy I'll [D7]be over [G]yonder
When I [C]trade the old [D7]cross for a [G]crown

And I will trade the old [D7]cross for a [G]crown
When the [D7]burdens of [A7]life I lay [D7]down   
When those [G]pearly gates for [B7]me shall swing [C]open
[G]I will [C]trade the old [D7]cross for a [G]crown

Every cross that I [D7]bear for my [G]Savior
Will at [C]last one day when He calls me lay [G]down
And all my sorrow will [D7]then be for[G]gotten
And that's when I'll [C]trade the old [D7]cross for a [G]crown

And I will trade the old [D7]cross for a [G]crown
When the [D7]burdens of [A7]life I lay [D7]down   
When those [G]pearly gates for [B7]me shall swing [C]open
[G]I will [C]trade the old [D7]cross for a [G]crown


I shall not bear the cross through yon city
When the burdens of life I lay down
When I knock on the portals of heaven
I will trade the old cross for a crown

Though the cross often times has been heavy
And all fortune on me begins to frown
But how happy I'll be over yonder
When I trade the old cross for a crown

And I will trade the old cross for a crown
When the burdens of life I lay down
When those pearly gates for me shall swing open
I will trade the old cross for a crown

Every cross that I bear for my Savior
Will at last one day when He calls me lay down
And all my sorrow will then be forgotten
And that's when I'll trade the old cross for a crown

And I will trade the old cross for a crown
When the burdens of life I lay down
When those pearly gates for me shall swing open
I will trade the old cross for a crown
