Where can I find the lyrics to the song Show me The Cross and I'll find my way home.

I think this is it:

Just a tiny little boy stood in tears
On a busy street corner--what was he doing here?
As he tried to explain all he knew was his name
But it was late and beginning to rain.

So, I asked him about the place where he lived
He remembered the old church where the big cross was lit
And his eyes opened wide and he said with a smile
If you can get me to the cross, I can find my way home.

Show me the cross and I'll find my home
Show me the cross and I'll know where to go
When I'm there beneath the cross; I'm no longer lost,
Show me the cross and I'll find my way home.

There was a lonely old pathway I had walked
It was far from familiar and I found myself lost.
But I remembered the place where I first saw His face
I cried, 'Lord, get me to the cross, and I'll find my way home.'

Show me the cross and I'll find my home
Show me the cross and I'll know where to go
When I'm there beneath the cross; I'm no longer lost,
Show me the cross and I'll find my way home.

When I'm there beneath the cross; I'm not longer lost,
Show me the cross and I'll find my way home.
Find my way home.

God bless,
Steve

I am Layton Malone (laytonmalone@yahoo.com). I heard this song on (thegospelstation.com) and wanted the lyrics to "Show Me the Cross and I'll Find My Way Home". I "Googled" the title and was directed to your site. What a great site it is!  I am a pastor in Smithfield, IL. and appreciate Country Gospel,as well as play and sing in church settings. So you can understand why I am excited about your site.  Thank You!   Layton

It is called, "Show Me the Cross and I'll Find My Way Home"  ,but the shorter title is just "Show Me the Cross."

Apparently this song was done by the Gold City Quartet, written by Barbi and Terry Franklin, and sheet music is now, finally, available as a digital download through musicnotes.com.
