Representative Text

1 Do you weary grow on your toilsome road?
Carry your burden with a smile;
Do you almost sink ‘neath your heavy load?
Carry your burden with a smile.

Refrain:
Carry your burden with a smile,
For sighing was never worth the while;
But ‘twill help the faint and weary o’er some long and rugged mile,
If you’ll carry your burden with a smile.

2 Does the sky seem dark and the way grow dim?
Carry your burden with a smile;
Look to God in faith, put your trust in Him,
Carry your burden with a smile. [Refrain]

3 There are hearts that long for the sunshine bright,
Carry your burden with a smile;
Let the glad song ring thro’ the darkest night,
Carry your burden with a smile. [Refrain]

4 Cast your all on Him, on His pow’r depend,
Carry your burden with a smile;
For the King of kings is your dearest Friend,
Carry your burden with a smile. [Refrain]
