I Walked One Day Along A Country Road

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 blessèd Savior call;

How can I make a lesser sacrifice,

When Jesus gave His all?

I cried, "Lord Jesus," and He spoke my name;

I saw His hands all bruised and torn;

I stooped to kiss away the marks of shame,

The shame for me that He had borne.


"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.


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.
