Representative Text

1 Your brother has a burden that is hard to bear;
He fell before the tempter in a sinful snare,
And he looks to you to help him;
He has drained the bitter cup:
In the name of Christ your Savior,
Lift him up, lift him up.

Refrain:
Lift him up, lift up your brother;
Lift him up, lift him up;
In the name of Christ your Savior,
Lift him up, lift him up.

2 In God’s own image, with a precious soul to save,
His strength turned into weakness,
Who was once so brave;
He is struggling for a foothold,
And would fain renounce the cup:
In the name of Christ your Savior,
Lift him up, lift him up. [Refrain]

3 If you will give him courage and his soul is won,
Your heart will leap with gladness
When the work is done;
One more star to shine in Heaven,
O what joy will fill your cup!
In the name of Christ your Savior,
Lift him up, lift him up. [Refrain]
