As long as I remember
I've been walking through the wilderness
Praying to the Father
And I'm waiting for my time
I've come here with a mission
And soon I'll give my life for this world

I'm praying in the garden
And I'm looking for a miracle
I find the journey hard but
It's the reason I was born
Can this cup be passed on
Lord, I pray Your will be done
In this world

So I'll carry My cross
And I'll carry the shame
To the end of the world
Through the struggle and pain
And I'll do it for love
No, it won't be in vain
Yes, I'll carry My cross
And I'll carry the shame

I feel like I'm alone here
And I'm treated like a criminal
The time has come for Me now
Even though I've done no wrong
Father, please forgive them
They know not what they've done
In this world

So I'll carry My cross
And I'll carry the shame
To the end of the world
Through the struggle and pain
And I'll do it for love
No, it won't be in vain
As I carry My cross
And I carry the shame

Three more days and I'll be coming back again
Three more days and I'll be coming back again

Yeah, so I'll carry My cross
And I'll carry the shame
To the end of the world
Through the struggle and pain
And I'll do it for love
No, it won't be in vain
Yes, I'll carry My cross
And I'll carry the shame

Oh yeah, yeah I'll carry My cross
And I'll carry the shame
Oh, and I'll do it for love, yeah
Oh...
Oh, I'll carry My cross
And I'll carry the shame

    General Commentthis song is from Jesus' point of view.
    & its talking about how He took the world's sins and shames onto Himself as a sacrifice.
    the song is amazing. & the lyrics even moreso.

    General CommentThis song makes me cry like a blubbering baby, but I love it so much. I really think this is the best Christian song of all time.
