Through the streets of Jerusalem
Over two thousand years ago
He showed us all just what we had to do
To get to where we wanna go

He prayed for strength to get back up
Every time He would stumble and fall
With blood sweat and tears runnin' down on His face
He was an example for us all

To carry the cross, shoulder the weight
He shed His blood so the world could be saved
If we walk in his steps we won't get lost
And He'll carry us when we're not strong enough
To carry the cross

Down the streets of our neighborhoods
Somebody's suffering everyday
The trials tribulations of every day life
Can be more than one person can take

He gives us the grace that all of us need
To face all our worries and fear
When I'm down my knees and I'm prayin' for help
It's His loving arms I feel pulling me near

To carry the cross, shoulder the weight
He shed His blood so the world could be saved
If we walk in His steps we won't get lost
And He'll carry us when we're not strong enough
To carry the cross

Some are big, some are small
But they're blessings for us all
As we follow in His steps to Calvary
