    Lyrics

    In a [G7] little country [C] village
    I met a [F] man and he was [C] blind
    As I [F] helped him cross the high-[C] way
    Oh! [Am] Lord I cried his [C] burdens are [G7] greater than [C] mine.

    I can [F] see the light of day
    I [C] need not feel my way
    Yes, thy burdens are [G7] greater than [C] mine.

    Met a lad while on my travels
    Tryin' hard to play the game
    Though his leg was very crippled
    And he could not speak his name
    Yet, he smiled in understandin'
    Though life to him had been unkind
    And as I watched, I cried in sorrow
    Oh! Lord his burdens are greater than mine.

    I can speak my name aloud
    Make my way among the crowd
    Yes, his burdens are greater than mine.

    Just by chance I passed a graveyard
    I saw a young man kneelin' there
    In his hand, there were some roses
    On his lips, there was a prayer
    On a stone, these words were written
    'Your soul is God's, your mem'ry mine'
    And as I watched, I cried in sorrow
    Oh! Lord I see his burdens are greater than mine
