My Cross

My Cross

I had a cross to carry
That daily grew in size.
I knew the hill was long,
The sweat dropped in my eyes.

Oh, Master! Are all so heavy?
Those crosses that others bear?
I struggle so to keep the road,
Ill never make it there!

He took me to a valley
Where crosses stood in rows;
He told me there to make my choice
And choose a lighter load.

We passed between the crosses.
I lifted every one.
The smallest was so heavy,
I came back for my own!

Oh, God!...Forgive me when I whine -
The wounded Savior is mine!
And though the upward road doth wind -
Remember me...His hand in mine!

His hand, His hand...in mine!

I like the thoughts expressed in this poem. It reminds us that we all struggle with burdens in this life, and to lighten our load we must walk closely with the Lord.
