As I Carry This Cross, You Carry Me

I have been listening to Audrey Assad almost exclusively for the past two months. She is a heart-capturing, emotion-producing, God-glorifying, non-fluffy, singer-songwriter. 

As I meditate and soak in Luke 9 for Sunday, her song Carry Me strikes a strong cord. Enjoy.

And [Jesus] said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me." (Luke 9:23, ESV)

 

Carry Me

Between the branches hope can be so hard to see
And in the darkness we've all got questions
We're all just trying to make sense out of suffering but

You say I am blessed because of this
So, I choose to believe
As I carry this cross, You'll carry me
Help me believe it

Fear is a current we all get caught in
And in its motion faith can be so hard to find
And we all falter 'cause we're all broken
We're all just trying to turn the shadows into light but

You get glory in the midst of this
And You're walking with me
And you say I am blessed because of this
So, I choose to believe
As I carry this cross, You'll carry me

And I know Your promises are faithful
And God, I've seen Your goodness in my life
And oh, I've found Your mercy is a river
Your love is an ocean wide

You say I am blessed because of this
You get glory in the midst of this
And You're walking with me

And You say I am blessed because of this
So, I choose to believe
As I carry this cross, as I carry this cross
'Cause as I carry this cross, You'll carry me

You'll carry me, God
You'll carry me
And Your love is an ocean wide
