Trading A Cross For A Crown

Lyrics

Print-Friendly Lyrics

Oh I started out with a made-up mind
To one day cross the finish line
I’m pressin’ toward the mark and for the prize
At times I’ve had to stand my ground
As Satan’s tried to turn me around
But I will not be hindered by his lies

I’m not gonna walk away
I’ve got too much at stake
I’ve come too far to turn back now
Every battle that I have fought
Will soon be forgot
And I’m trading this old cross in for a crown

I can almost hear them cheer me on
And see the ones who have reached Home
Now they wait for us to win this race
A banquet like we’ve never known
Will be held at God’s royal throne
And there we’ll be rewarded for our faith

I’m not gonna walk away
I’ve got too much at stake
I’ve come too far to turn back now
Every battle that I have fought
Will soon be forgot
And I’m trading this old cross in for a crown
(repeat)

I’m trading this old cross in for a crown
