1 Count it all joy to bear the cross of Jesus!
Just a little burden for the Master’s sake;
Soon there will be exceeding weight of glory
For His tried and faithful servants to partake.

Refrain:
Count it all joy, count it all joy,
Count it joy to serve the Lord from day to day;
Count it all joy to bear the cross of Jesus,
All things work for good to those who love the Lord.

2 Count it all joy when sorely tried and tempted!
He has promised grace to help in time of need;
Trusting in God, press ever on to conquer,
He will always prove to be a friend indeed. [Refrain]

3 Count it all joy when walking thro’ the valley!
Even in the night the Lord will give a song;
Jesus can turn thy sorrow into gladness;
Praise and honor unto Him for aye belong. [Refrain]
