tR a D i n ’  th e oL D  CR o s s :
Oh I started out with a made-up mind
To one day cross the finish line
I’m pressin’ toward the mark and for the prize
At times I’ve had to stand my ground
As Satan’s tried to turn me around
But I will not be hindered by his lies
I’m not gonna walk away
I’ve got too much at stake
I’ve come too far to turn back now
Every battle that I have fought
Will soon be forgot
And I’m trading this old cross in for a crown
I can almost hear them cheer me on
And see the ones who have reached Home
Now they wait for us to win this race
A banquet like we’ve never known
Will be held at God’s royal throne
And there we’ll be rewarded for our faith
I’m not gonna walk away
I’ve got too much at stake
I’ve come too far to turn back now
Every battle that I have fought
Will soon be forgot
And I’m trading this old cross in for a crown
(repeat)
I’m trading this old cross in for a crown
Trading My Cross For a Crown
(Collingsworth Family)


I started out with a made up mind
To one day cross the finish line
I’m pressing toward the mark and for the prize
At times I’ve had to stand my ground
As Satans tried to turn me around
But I will not be hindered by his lies

(Chorus)
I’m not going to walk away
I’ve got too much at stake
I’ve come too far to turn back now
Every battle that I have fought will soon be forgot
And I’m trading this old cross in for a crown

I can almost hear them cheer me on 
And see the ones that have reached home
Now they await for us to win this race
A banquet like we’ve never known
Will be held at God’s royal throne
And there we’ll be rewarded for our faith

(Chorus)

(Repeat Chorus)

(Tag) Trading this old cross in for a crown

(Repeat Chorus)
