Good Friday Morning

~Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830-1894)

“Bearing His Cross.”

Up Thy Hill of Sorrows
    Thou all alone,
Jesus, man’s Redeemer,
    Climbing to a Throne:
Thro’ the world triumphant,
    Thro’ the Church in pain,
Which think to look upon Thee
    No more again.

Upon my hill of sorrows
    I, Lord, with Thee,
Cheered, upheld, yea, carried,
    If a need should be:
Cheered, upheld, yea, carried,
    Never left alone,
Carried in Thy heart of hearts
    To a throne.
