Lead Me To The Cross Meaning

The song  Lead Me To The Cross is a good reminder for all of us that we are not our own. We only owe this to life to God. You and I are belong to Him. We must know that everything is inferior compared to Jesus’s companionship.

This song was originally composed by Brooke Fraiser of Hillsong and it was released in March 26, 2007. This song was also became the eight track on Newboy’s 13th studio album, In the Hands of God.

When you come to God, every time you spend time in praying and reading His words, you’ll recognize His presence. The lyrics of the song is asking for rest and peace for all the things that we have encountered. The song remind us the Christian story . It encourage us to ask help and offer ourselves to God. Letting go the things that we are tempted and things we think bring us happiness and meaning in our lives. We must follow our God and ask for salvation. Give up everything- including ourselves- and most of all love Him and believe Him that He will enter your soul and heart and lead you to the the cross.

Lyrics:

Savior I come
Quiet my soul remember
Redemption’s hill
Where Your blood was spilled
For my ransom
Everything I once held dear
I count it all as loss

Chorus
Lead me to the cross
Where Your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to You
Lead me, lead me to the cross

You were as I
Tempted and trialed
Human
The word became flesh
Bore my sin and death
Now you’re risen

Everything I once held dear
I count it all as loss

To your heart
To your heart
Lead me to your heart
Lead me to your heart

Psalm 61:2“From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”
