Lyrics

Bear the Cross
Written and Produced by: Justin Martyr Francis
a.k.a. Justin-Credible
Verse 1:
They spat on my face, mocked me cursed me
Crown of thorns on the head still showed mercy
I said “Father forgive them for they know not”
They stripped off my clothes and started to cast lots
The pain of the whips were like bullets from a rifle
Three times denied by my own disciples
Nailed to the Cross some wept some smiled¬--sentenced to death, without a fair trial
I told them I was thirsty vinegar was the beverage
Right at this point Satan thought he had the leverage
But he couldn’t be more wrong I went and took back the keys--of death and disease
So all could be free
Betrayed by the ones I used to know
Prophesied all this would happen than the rooster crowed
Then on the third day an earthquake the world rumbled
The stone was rolled away, Satan’s kingdom crumbled

Chorus
I’ll Bear the Cross with ya (I’ll Bear the Cross with ya)
Hey¬¬¬¬¬¬--cuz on the third day you rose again/
I’ll Bear the Cross with ya (I’ll Bear the Cross with ya)
Lord cleanse me of all my sin/
Repeat
Verse 2:
This is all fact ain’t nothing to be debated
Christ was crucified by the same ones that he created
My view of the Gospel used to be vague and jaded
Then the Lord opened my eyes and my doubts dissipated
Knowledge integrated due to biblical truths
That are converted into lyrics over beats in the booth
With hot tracks, got the devil sweating--my Bible’s my automatic weapon
Praises go up then down falls a blessing
If it wasn’t for the Lord’s sacrifice
We wouldn’t be promised heaven in the afterlife
Yall ain’t acting right, the Lord is risen make no mistake
You can find the proof in Matthew 28
Read verse six it says that he is risen
Now it’s up to you to make the right decision
No matter how difficult it might seem
We’re all called to Bear the Cross like Simon of Cyrene
Chorus
I’ll Bear the Cross with ya (I’ll Bear the Cross with ya)
Hey¬¬¬¬¬¬--cuz on the third day you rose again/
I’ll Bear the Cross with ya (I’ll Bear the Cross with ya)
Lord cleanse me of all my sin/
Repeat
Verse 3:
I need God the way the Lakers needed Shaq
I need his love like a fat kid needs snacks
I need God like cancer needs a cure
But one day I know we’ll get the answer from the Lord
Mark 8-34 take up the Cross and follow
Live right then eternal life can’t be lost or borrowed
I deny myself, I gotta try myself
Cause on Judgment Day I’ll be by myself
With no one else, that why I’m purpose driven
I had to distance myself from certain women
Who dress less to impress the opposite sex
Seeking success but end up with much less
Much stress, to those who live in vain
Cause later on they’ll most likely live in shame
From the beginning to the end one God none greater
It’s time to Bear the Cross and follow the creator
Chorus--Repeat
