The Love That Bore the Cross For Me (When Every Step’s an Uphill Battle)

When every step’s an uphill battle

And every victory’s followed by a cliff to climb

When the foe stands atop every precipice

And I just want to collapse

I remember

The Love that bore the Cross for me

Stands with hands held out

The hands that caught me when I fell

Sustained me when I could do no more

And give me victories that I could never win

 

When I’m weary of this world

And every river has run dry

Still I struggle for it is my desire

To conquer, to win the crown

He has promised

The Love that bore the Cross for me

Stands with hands held out

The hands that caught me when I fell

Sustained me when I could do no more

And give me victories that I could never win

 

When shades of night fight me every step

And when I’ve fallen always He has upheld me

How I long for the day when shadows vanish

Before the light of dawning

When He appears

The Love that bore the Cross for me

Stands with hands held out

The hands that caught me when I fell

Sustained me when I could do no more

And give me victories that I could never win

 

When I’m weary of this life

And Heaven beckons with open doors and glory

This world fades away into mist

Now I just want to go home

There where He is

The Love that bore the Cross for me

Stands with hands held out

The hands that caught me when I fell

Sustained me when I could do no more

And give me victories that I could never win
