Verse 1

IFn a little countCry village IF met a man and heC was blind ACs I helped him across the highway IC cried thy buGrdens are greaCter than mine IF can see the light of day ACnd I need not feel my way YCes thy burdeGns are greaterC than mine

Verse 2

Saw a lad while on his travels Trying hard to play the game Though his legs were very crippled And he could not speak his name Still he smiled in understanding Though life to him had been unkind As I watched I thought in sorrow Son thy burdens are greater than mine I can speak my name aloud Make my way among the crowd Yes thy burdens are greater than mine

Verse 3

Just by chance I passed a graveyard Saw a young man kneeling there In his hand there were some roses On his lips there was a prayer On a stone these words were written My soul is gone my memory done As I watched I thought in sorrow Friend thy burdens are greater than mine Just a drifter on the road Got no friends I got no home Yes thy burdens are greater than mine
