The Cross That He Gave Is Heavy


The cross that He gave is heavy,
And the light on my path is dim,
Yet I feel a blessed assurance,
Whenever I think of Him.

Refrain:
Whenever I think of Him,
Whenever I think of Him,
He fills my soul with divine control,
Whenever I think of Him.

I stand on the mount of promise,
Rising up from the vale of prayer;
For my soul is filled with His goodness,
And thoughts of His love and care. [Refrain]

Some day it will all be over;
Then with loved ones gone on before,
I will join the saints and the martyrs,
And praise Him forevermore. [Refrain]
