When The Cross Seems Is Hard To Carry


When the cross seems hard to carry,
Lift! brother, lift!
O’er the burden never tarry,
Lift! brother, lift!

Chorus:
Lift the cross and clasp it tighter,
Lift! brother, lift!
Lifting makes the burden lighter,
Lift! brother, lift!

Duty’s call is self-denying,
Lift! brother, lift!
Half the battle lies in trying,
Lift! brother, lift! [Chorus]

When the evil seems the strongest,
Lift! brother, lift!
Lift the hardest, lift the longest,
Lift! brother, lift! [Chorus]
