The Cross Of Our Lord

There’s a house on the hill,
it’s the cross of the Lord;
where forgiveness of sins,
faith and love are restored.
Would you carry that cross
if He asked it of you?
What, my friends,
what, my friends, would you do?

Would you carry His cross
through an uneven street,
while others hurled insults
and spit at your feet?

Would you carry that cross
if He asked it of you;
could you stay awake as he prayed,
if He needed you to?

What, what, what would you do?


And what would you do
if the soldiers came;
would you stand and shout it,
or just deny His name?

Would you lay down your coat
on the road at His feet
if He walked right by you,
on a dirty muddy street?

What, what, what would you do?


If He were accused,
standing all on His own;
would you stand and protect Him,
or cast that first stone?

Would you tell all the others,
or would you run and hide;
would you proclaim He is the Lord
and stand at His side?

What, what, what would you do?
