Carrying Our Cross
By Christine Hare Tate
Carrying our cross seems hard to bear
and our suffering may seem unfair,
but Jesus walked to Calvary’s hill
determined to obey God’s will….
The wounds He bore in shame and sorrow,
purchased hope for our tomorrow…
So let us bravely bear our cross
without fainting or remorse…
Undaunted by what we see
trusting God exclusively,
though thorns and briars block our way
we press onward everyday…
Remember God’s sufficient grace
helps us as we run our race…
We’re beacon lights before all men,
privileged to be born again!
With God’s message to proclaim,
Let us glorify His name!
