The father and the son step down
Looked down at the world below
The distance world where sin's strong arm
Struck a favourable blow
There had to be a sacrifice
Across a lonely hill
Someone had to span the globe
So Jesus said I will

I will go the distance
I will go that far
I will give up everything to bring them where you are
Eventhough I could choose the path that leads resistance
Father I will take the cross
I will go the distance

Think about his sacrifice
Leaves me with a choice to make
So many stand just out of reach
With eternity at stake
I can be the 'go-between'
Who'll walk the extra mile
If just one should find their way
Then it's been worth the while

I will go the distance
I will go that far
I will give up everything to bring them where you are
Eventhough I could choose the path that leads resistance
Father I will take the cross
I will go the distance

I will go the distance
I will go that far
I will give up everything to bring them where you are
Eventhough I could choose the path that leads resistance
Father I will take the cross
I will go the distance

Father I will take the cross
I will go the distance
