There's a Cross on a Hill





There's a cross on a hill just off the road heading out of town.

A rutty old road goes up there winding up and around stopping just short of the hillside's crown.

And it calls all passersby in their heart of hearts to turn, to come to lay their heads down.


There's a cross on a hill on the road out of town can you see it? There's a cross on a hill on the road back home can you hear it? Standing there so plain don't make it call in vain turn, and come to it!


His cross stood just like that when His all gave He and made His way up Calvary. And it called then just the same to hearts of the past to come to Him long at last.


There's a cross on a hill just off the road heading out of town.

A rutty old road goes up there winding up and around stopping just short of the hillside's crown.

It calls you, a passerby in your heart of hearts to turn, to come as well, to lay your head down.


There's a cross on a hill on the road out of town can you see it? There's a cross on a hill on the road back home can you hear it? Standing there so plain don't make it call in vain turn, and come to it!


John 3:16
