Verse 1: Tho’ your heart may be heavy with sorrow and care, You may others to gladness beguile, If a face like the light of the morning you wear, And carry your cross with a smile!
Verse 2: Let the well by the wayside that flows unto all, Strength impart for each step of the mile; Let your faith the great promises often recall, And carry your cross with a smile!
Verse 3: For the work that you faithfully, willingly do, You shall reap a reward afterwhile; Only grace in your service can glorify you, So carry your cross with a smile!
Chorus: Carry your cross with a smile, Carry your cross with a smile; You may others from sadness to gladness beguile, If you carry your cross with a smile!
