07. Carry My Cross

Wherever You Are
by Third Day



 

As long as I remember
Iíve been walking through the wilderness
Praying to the Father
And waiting for my time
Iíve come here with a mission
And soon Iíll give my life for this world

Iím praying in the garden
And Iím looking for a miracle
I find the journey hard but
Itís the reason I was born
Can this cup be passed on
Lord, I pray your will be done
In this world


So Iíll carry my cross
And Iíll carry the shame
To the end of the road
Through the struggle and pain
And Iíll do it for love
No, it wonít be in vain
Yes, Iíll carry my cross
And Iíll carry the shame

I feel like Iím alone here
And Iím treated like a criminal
The time has come for me now
Even though Iíve done no wrong
Father, please forgive them
They know not what theyíve done
In this world

Three more days and Iíll be coming back again
Three more days and Iíll be coming back again

Behind the Song:
'We all have crosses to carry. Maybe it's the guilt of sin. Maybe it's a loss or temptation. Maybe it's a personal or emotional affliction. The weight of those burdens can keep us paralyzed. Jesus carries them for us. But that's not all. Though we will always have struggles, God gives us not just another burden. God gives us a yolk that is light. We can side up with His kingdom and be a part of the incredible tale of human history with a unique and meaningful purpose.' - Tai Anderson (Third Day)
