Bear on, my soul! the bitter cross
Of every trial here
Shall lift thee to thy heaven above,
But shall not enter there.
Bear on, my soul! on God rely;
Deliverance will come;
A thousand ways the Father hath
To bring His children home.
And Thou, my heavenly Friend and Guide,
Hast kindly led me on;
Taught me to rest my fainting head
Upon Thy heart alone.
So comforted and so sustained,
With dark events I strove,
And found, when rightly understood,
All, messengers of love.
