"Hard" Lyrics [edit]
by Rich Mullins | from the album A Liturgy, A Legacy & A Ragamuffin Band
 

Well, I am a good Midwestern boy,
Give an honest day's work if I can get it,
I don't cheat on my taxes, I don't cheat on my girl,
I got values that would make the White House jealous,
Well, I do get a little much over-impressed 'til I think of Peter, and Paul, and the apostles,
I don't stack up too well against them, I guess,
But by the standards 'round here, I ain't doing that awful.

Lord, it's hard to turn the other cheek,
Hard to bless when others curse you,
Oh, Lord, it's hard to be a man of peace,
Lord, it's hard,
Oh, it's hard,
You know it's hard to be like Jesus,
Don't you know it's hard?
Oh, it's hard,
Oh, Lord, it's hard to be like Jesus.

And it's hard to step out on them waves,
Hard to walk beyond your vision,
Oh, Lord, it's hard to be a man of faith,
Lord, it's hard, (hard),
Lord, it's hard, (so hard),
Oh, Lord, it's hard to be like Jesus,
Don't you know it's hard? (hard)
Oh, it's hard, (yeah, hard)
Oh, Lord, it's hard to be like Jesus.

Well, his eye is on the sparrow and the lilies of the field, I've heard,
And he will watch over you, and he will watch over me, so we can dress like flowers and eat like birds.

And it's hard when your soul had been stripped bare,
Hard to lift your eyes toward Heaven,
Oh, Lord, it's hard to be a man of prayer,
Lord, it's hard, (hard)
Oh, it's hard,
You know it's hard to be like Jesus.

Lord, it's hard to be a man of peace,
But it's hard, (so hard)
Ain't it hard? (so hard)
You know it's hard to be like Jesus,
Don't you know it's hard? (hard)
And it's hard, (yeah, hard)
To be a man of peace, (hard, so hard)
But it's hard to be like Jesus.
And I try and try and try, (hard)
Oh, Lord, I try so hard so hard, (yeah, hard)
Don't you know it's hard? (hard, so hard)
Oh, glory, (hard)
Oh, gracious, (so hard)
But ain't it hard to be like Jesus?

Well, I am a good Midwestern boy,
Give an honest day's work if I can get it,
I don't cheat on my taxes, I don't cheat on my girl,
I got values that would make the White House jealous.
