172. I Walked One Day

  1. I walked one day along a country road,

    And there a Stranger journeyed too,

    Bent low beneath the burden of His load:

    It was a cross, a cross I knew.

    "Take up thy cross and follow Me,"

    I hear the blessed Saviour call;

    How can I make a lesser sacrifice,

    When Jesus gave His all?

  2. "O let me bear Thy cross, dear Lord," I cried,

    And, lo, a cross for me appeared,

    The one forgotten I had cast aside,

    The one, so long, that I had feared,

  3. My cross I'll carry till the crown appears,

    The way I journey soon will end,

    Where God Himself shall wipe away all tears,

    And friend hold fellowship with friend.

Something wrong? Let me know.
