The Father and the Son stepped out
Looked down at the world below
A distant world where sin-strong arms
Had struck a fatal blow
There had to be a sacrifice
Across the 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
Even tho I could choose the path of least resistance
Father I will take the cross
I will go the distance
To 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 walks the extra mile
If just one should find The 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
Even tho I could choose the path of least 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
Even tho I could choose the path of least resistance
Father I will take the cross
I will go the distance
Father I will take the cross
I will go the distance
