This Cross

by Del Way






Every day I take up my cross and follow him
There are times it seems too much to bear.
But when I think back to my days lost in sin,
I gladly choose this cross when I compare.

Oh, sometimes this cross gets so heavy,
But each day I take it up again,
Because I know its weight is so much lighter
Than the chains that kept me bound in sin.

Jesus bore my cross that day on Calvary,
And he took upon himself all my sin;
Now by his grace I call him Savior,
And with joy I bear this cross now for him.

Oh, sometimes this cross gets so heavy,
But each day I take it up again,
Because I know its weight is so much lighter
Than the chains that kept me bound in sin.
Than the chains that kept me bound in sin.
Than the chains that kept me bound in sin.
