Jeff & Sheri Easter – The Unexpected Cross lyrics

The Unexpected Cross
Travelling through Jerusalem, Simon of Cyrene
Came upon the Crucifixion of the innocent Nazarene
The Soldiers shouted orders, gave Simon's heart a chill
Then he took the cross for Jesus, carried it up the hill

The unexpected Cross, is always hard to bear
But there's glory in the suffering, Triumph in despair
For Christ is our example, and the crown is worth the cost
Lord, help me to bear faithfully, the unexpected cross

Along the road to heaven, crosses lie unsaved
A crisis for the moment, to keep the spirit keen
As Jesus gives the orders help to sacrifice the will
Take up the cross and follow, the victory on the hill

[Repeat chorus:]
Lord, help me to bear faithfully, the unexpected cross
