Crabb Family – Trail Of Tears lyrics

I heard about the lonely day
When jesus had to die
It must have broke his mother's heart
O the tears she must have cried
And though she knew the plan divine
He was still her precious son
It only seemed like yesterday
In a stable he was born

There must have been a trail of tears
From the cross to the place
Where they laid him down to rest
In a cold and lonely grave
And as the storm rolled to the door
To seal the prince of life within
It must have felt just like the end
There must have been a trail of tears

Mary knew the day would come
She'd have to say goodbye
The son was on a mission for
Which he would give his life
The angels knew redemption being
Carried out to man
He was dying there on calvary
The sacrificial land

Repeat chorus 2x
