Lyrics

The cross that He gave is heavy,
And the light on my path is dim,
Yet I feel a blessèd assurance,
Whenever I think of Him.

Refrain

Whenever I think of Him,
Whenever I think of Him,
He fills my soul with divine control,
Whenever I think of Him.

I stand on the mount of promise,
Rising up from the vale of prayer;
For my soul is filled with His goodness,
And thoughts of His love and care.

Refrain

Some day it will all be over;
Then with loved ones gone on before,
I will join the saints and the martyrs,
And praise Him forevermore.
