The Burden Of The Cross
As my Savior did His Father's will.
He needed no chains that H
 

Never placed upon my head

Was the cruel crown of thorn

Pierced with blood of red

That made Him cry and morn ...

He needed no chains that He might flee.

 

Never whipped and spit upon

And  humiliated beyond compare,

How humble was the agony

That my Savior did bear ...

He needed no chains that He might flee.

 

Never carried the heavy cross

Or struggled up Golgotha Hill,

One so worthy of God's love

As my Savior did His Father's will ...

He needed no chains that He might flee.

 

Never nails driven in my hands and feet

Like Him that hung there on the rugged cross,

No piercing in my side

None like Him has paid the cost ...

He needed no chains that He might flee.

 

Daily I do carry

The thorn of flesh given to me,

But God's love is sufficient

His love sets me free ...

I need no chains for His love keeps me.

 

Daily I do carry

The cross sometimes hard to bear,

But my Savior is there with me

Always filled with care ...

I need no chains for His love keeps me.

If Christ lives within us,

We need no chains to bind us down.

We're on the straight and narrow,

Waiting patiently for our robe and crown.

If Christ is our keeper, we're kept by the power of God.
