FOR EVERY CROSS THERE IS A CROWN

 Mark Bishop

Every step I take I know I'm drawing nearer
For the thoughts of worldly wealth mean less each day.
The things I use to think were so important
Now they seem to just be in the way.
I'm so glad He offered all of us salvation
For we'd have no hope if he had not come down
He sees each and every problem,
Every burden that we carry
And He whispers, "Soon you'll trade them for a crown."

Though the road is long and hard and I may stumble
And the world claims victory when I am down
Through it all I'm still clinging to that promise
For every cross there is a crown.

The decision's yours; be careful how you make it
There's a choice to make, and you must take a stand
There are a million souls who die without salvation
And they would trade the world away for one more chance.
The greatest miracle taken for granted
Is that the Son of God has died for you and me
And though the world tries to ignore Him,
I will shout how I adore Him
Though the devil rages, Jesus I'll believe.

Though the road is long and hard and I may stumble
And the world claims victory when I am down
Through it all I'm still clinging to that promise
For every cross there is a crown.
