Words & music by scott krippayne & tony wood

Leaving the safe and familiar
With their hearts set on a heavenly prize
There were some who laid down their nets
And some who laid down their lives
Not sure where they were going
But they did not have to know
'cause they knew who had called them
And they said, "we will go"

Down any road at any cost
Wherever you lead we will follow
Because we know that you've called us
To take up our cross
Down any road at any cost

It may be fear that we're feeling
We see what we must sacrifice
But you promised you'll go with us
So we'll trust with our lives

(repeat chorus)

It's your love that compels us
To do what you've called us to do
And be completely abandoned to you

(repeat chorus)

Because we know that you've called us
To take up our cross
Down any road at any cost
