Black day, stormy night
No love, no hope N sight
Don't cry, He is coming
Don't die without knowing the cross

Ghettos 2 the left of us
Flowers 2 the right
There'll B bread 4 all of us
If we can just bear the cross

Sweet song of salvation
A pregnant mother sings
She lives N starvation
Her children need all that she brings

We all have our problems
Some big, some R small
Soon all of our problems
Will B taken by the cross

Black day, stormy night
No love, no hope N sight
Don't cry 4 He's coming
Don't die without knowing the cross, y'all

Ghettos 2 the left of us
Flowers 2 the right
There'll B bread 4 all y'all
If we can just, just bear the cross, yeah

We all have our own problems
Some R big, some R small
Soon all of our problems, y'all
Will B taken by the cross, oh yes

The cross
The cross
