Story

While writing the songs for Back to the Cross, I was looking back at times, I had drifted from my love and commitment to my Lord Jesus Christ. Times I was living in compromise, as a lukewarm believer but pretending to be spiritual. That's what the song "Back to the Cross" is about.  It's about remembering what it was like confessing my sin and getting right with God. It's about recalling how much time I wasted on foolish things. It's about being forgiven and making a fresh and loving commitment to Jesus Christ.

Lyrics

VERSE 1

I lost my way, more than a time or two. 

I had to find my way back to the cross.

I chose my own path more than a time or two.

I count those times as a lost.

I count those times as a loss.

 

CHORUS

I’m coming back to the cross Lord.

I’m coming back to the cross.

I want to count my life as loss Lord.

That’s why I’m back at the cross.

 

VERSE 2

Darkness was my guide Lord

as I drifted side to side.

I had so much pride Lord – to push you aside 

and try to be my own guide.

 

CHORUS

I’m coming back to the cross Lord.

I’m coming back to the cross.

I want to count my life as loss Lord.

That’s why I’m back at the cross.

 

VERSE 3

Jesus be my guide Lord

won’t you light my way.

Let the darkness stay behind me

as I walk your way.

 

CHORUS

I’m taking up my cross Lord

deny myself , follow you.

I’m taking up my cross Lord

and daily follow you.
