Counted Worthy


Rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer Acts 5:41.If so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together&md;Romans 8:17.

This weighty burden thou dost bear, This heavy cross,It is a gift the Lord bestows,And not a loss;It is a trust that He commits Unto thy care,A precious lesson He has deigned With thee to share.

Rejoice that He so honors theeAnd so esteemsOf highest worth; the crown of thornsWith Him to wear,And all the suffering of that crownWith Him to bear,That by and by His glory, too,With Him thou'lt share.
