Representative Text

1 More and more the weight of glory,
For our light afflictions here;
Glory grand, supreme, eternal,
If the cross for Christ we bear.

Refrain:
More and more the weight of glory,
More and more the love of God;
More of music in the story,
As we sing of Christ the Lord;
More of music in the story,
As we sing of Christ the Lord.

2 Lessons learned thro’ pain and sorrow,
Break the ground for precious seed;
Seed that buds and comes to blossom,
Only in the hearts that bleed. [Refrain]

3 O’er the fields where once were battles,
Now the fairest flow’rs are found;
So the souls that here have conflicts,
More and more in grace abound. [Refrain]

4 Looking on to things eternal,
Let us daily die to sin;
To the end, by grace enduring,
We the glory grand, may win. [Refrain]
