When You Carry the Cross
Artist: Braden York

Broken, trembling, devastated crushed.
Am I abandoned for my sin?
Where did my folly begin?

There is a war,
that has raged for centuries.
It's gone mostly unnoticed,
but everywhere it can be seen.

Am I ready to conquer
the path that's set before me?
Or am I gonna' fight for my own will;
digging my damnation deeper still?

Have I destroyed my faith,
trampled on God's grace?
Am I completely lost?

I didn't expect this weight,
this burden feels too great.
Somebody cut it off!

The Master bore a burden all His life.
Should we hope for something less?

He took the nails into His feet and hands,
so the whole world could be blessed,
when you carry the cross.

Fearful, selfish, working for myself.
Is it about serving the Lord well?
Or about getting out of Hell?

There is a way
to a place of life eternal,
but it requires sacrifice;
even Jesus paid a price.

Are you willing to forsake
the wicked ways of this world
to live a life that's pleasing to the Lord?
Or are you gonna' wait a little more?

Have I destroyed my faith,
trampled on God's grace?
Am I completely lost?

I didn't expect this weight,
this burden feels too great.
Somebody cut it off!

The Master bore a burden all His life.
Should we hope for something less?

He took the nails into His feet and hands,
so the whole world could be blessed-

Come drink the water that
forever quenches our thirst.

This water guides you to the
One who's broken the curse.

Destroy the shame that is
clouding your mind.
Forget the things which are behind.

So you can have comfort,
purpose, love that never fails.
It's not about the things that you have done.
It's all about surrender to the Son.

There is a hope.
God can mend your broken heart,
and He'll do it all for free,
if you just hand Him every piece.

You'll be hated, railed on,
faced with persecutions.
Jesus was familiar with these things.
Hallelujah: we can walk just like the King!

Have I destroyed my faith,
trampled on God's grace?
Am I completely lost?

I didn't expect this weight,
this burden feels too great.
Somebody cut it off!

The Master bore a burden all His life.
Should we hope for something less?

He took the nails into His feet and hands,
so the whole world could be blessed-

Come drink the water that
forever quenches our thirst.

This water guides you to the
One who's broken the curse.

Destroy the shame that is
clouding your mind.
Forget the things which are behind.

I must restore my faith.
I've got no time to waste,
It's time to count the cost.

He says to lose your life,
a living sacrifice.
So just forsake it all!

If your friends and family
hate the truth, you gotta'
leave them all behind.

The Holy One was crucified for you,
and salvation you will find,
when you carry the cross.
