05. This Cross

A Voice in the Wilderness Vol. 1
by David Vaters

       
Lyrics:

Donít take this cross
Donít take this cross
Donít take this cross from me
Donít take this cross

Iíve know you form the beginning Regardless of the lies
Iíve been on a rescue mission To take your place and die
If I hadnít had this burden If I hadnít known your toll
If I hadnít had known your sorrow I wouldnít be the one

Donít take this cross down
Donítí take my cup
Donít take it from me
Iíll drink it up
Donít take this suffering
They will be done
Salvations coming and my work is done

When you find yourself in trouble You try hard but always fail
I took all your pain and suffering So just call out my name
If your still wondering about me And if what I said was true
Look up to the cross I hung on And the blood I spilled for you

Chorus repeat 2x
Donít take this cross donít take this cross donít take this cup from me Iíll drink it up

Behind the Song:
This is a deep song besides the obvious message of governments trying to prohibit crosses in public. However, there is a deeper meaning to this song if you think of the lyrics from Jesus prospective while he was being hung on the cross...think about it. It's deep but the revelation is awesome! Written around 4am in Lubbock, Texas. I wept for an hour after I wrote this song.
