I'll bear my cross

I'll bear my cross 4.12 (1991)

man:
I watch the clouds and sit and wonder
just how many years it'll be
before this mist shall leave my aura
and I'll stand up strong and free

it's been a hard road and a long one
it got harder with the years
now I wish for someone to hold me
some guardian angel to dry my tears

angel:
but I was with you I was ever near
I whispered soft words held your hand
in times of pain I suffered with you
and tried to make you understand

both:
will love win out ?
love will win out
can I hold on ?
you can hold on
God angels saints of ages
hold on a little longer
I so long to be with you
I am with you

man:
I remember how I started out
so determined feeling strong
along the way I found some true friends
still I wonder what's gone wrong

so carry me carry across the waters
at least see me see me you saints and guides
I need some warmth some confirmation
I'm tired of stumbling towards the light

angel:
o my child I feel your struggle
I see the hard lines on your face
if you only knew how I care for you
and could surrender to love's grace

both:
will love win out ?
love will win out
can I hold on ?
you can hold on
God angels saints of ages
hold on a little longer
I so long to be with you
I am with you

still I'll get there no matter what it takes
together we've got what it takes
won't look for gain won't count the loss
in your dreams we talk like friends
I surrender I don't have a choice
come and rest your head and sleep
I'll play the game I'll bear my cross
I'll point the way I'll bear your cross
