"E'en though it be a cross"

I'm perplexed that it often takes me so long to catch on to details that are obvious to others. This happens especially with poetic language like that found in the hymns.
Nearer my God to thee,
Nearer to thee!
E'en though it be a cross
That raiseth me.
Today I was finally hit by the import of those words.
