Lead me to the Cross

Have you ever had a song worship song that just speaks to your soul? One that so perfectly details the exact emotions you are experiencing at a particular point in your spiritual journey? I know I do. In fact, I have a few that will transport right back into a previous experience when I hear them.

One of my absolute favorite worship songs is called Lead me to the Cross by Hillsong. This song is very dear to my heart because I heard it when I was experiencing a really difficult time during my infertility journey. Our infertility journey ripped me down to my core and pulled me away from God. I felt as though I was being punished for something and I had no idea what it was. I spent so much time being angry, asking questions, and being filled with bitterness.

A few years into my journey I found a new church and I heard this song. It brought me to tears immediately. God called out to me with this song telling me I needed to be at his feet. With it He reminded me that this experience was an opportunity to see His heart and not a form of punishment. He told me to listen for his voice and that nothing else in this world matter except His glorious heart! With those words he nudged me back to home where I could find freedom from blame, shame, and guilt. The song also reminded me that we serve a God of love, not one who is eager to punish.

If you don't think you can get all that from a song. Read and listen to the lyrics for yourself.

"Lead Me To The Cross"

Savior I come
Quiet my soul remember
Redemption's hill
Where Your blood was spilled
For my ransom
Everything I once held dear
I count it all as loss

[Chorus:]
Lead me to the cross
Where Your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to You
Lead me, lead me to the cross

You were as I
Tempted and trialed
Human
The word became flesh
Bore my sin and death
Now you're risen

Everything I once held dear
I count it all as loss

[Chorus]

To your heart
To your heart
Lead me to your heart
Lead me to your heart
