The Burden Of The Cross

Jesus may I follow you
As you take your cross and walk
May I wash your face with your blood
You take my sins at a great cost

As you carry the cross
How much you love your people
Small as I am
The way is so long,
Yet you do it because you are The Great "I AM"

Can I stand at your side,
I never was so close to God
I am thankful, in His image I am made

I feel your sorrow and your suffering
I need to be near you
My heart belongs to the King

The way to the cross where you lay
With nails in your hands
I will be with you until it is finished
When you cry out
'Forgive them for they no not what they do"
My Dearest Jesus, please forgive me too
