Way of the Cross
© 1972 William C. Highsmith

The Way of the Cross is well lighted,
No shadows for lurking there-in.
No evil will ever be sighted -
No pain from the burdens of sin.

Don't misunderstand me my brother,
There's trouble and strife all around.
But the Way of the Cross, like no other,
Is built on a higher ground.

This Way was paved by the Master.
He shed His dear Blood on that Cross.
His was the purpose and intent,
Not one of His children be lost.

The Sovereign, the Life, and the Truth,
No Way to the Father but His.
Your trials and troubles He'll sooth,
The Light of the world He is.

Oh! Want you see, the Way of the Cross
will surely lead you home.
