|1- To know the Lord is to
bear His cross,
Go with Him through His passion and death.
Towards the sacred goal I press,
And everything else I count as a loss.
R- Holy Cross, glorious, honored, wooden cross,
Source of my strength.
2- Walking the second mile is a cross,
Turning the other cheek is a cross.
Loving our enemy is a cross,
Going through the narrow road is a cross.
3- Holding faith in distress,
While persecuted we bless.
His mercies are countless,
His sweet love knows no boundaries.
