He Didn't Just Carry The Cross, He Carried Me
by The Hoppers



Once upon His back He knew,
This was the beginning of the end.
With every fragile step he grew,
More and more determined to finish it.

The world saw a man with a tree on His back,
And they laughed.
But God saw His Son who He loved,
Carry more than that.

Oh, He didn't just carry a cross, He carried me.
He didn't just count the cost, He counted me.
So much has been said of what happened at Calvary,
Oh but I believe,
He didn't just carry a cross, He carried me.

Mercy held my broken heart,
close against His shoulders as He wept.
Love beyond a moment scarred the hands and feet,
of one I never met.

The world saw a man die a martyr between two thieves,
But God saw a lamb bridge the gap of eternity.

Oh, He didn't just carry a cross, He carried me.
He didn't just count the cost, He counted me.
So much has been said of what happened at Calvary,
Oh but I believe,
He didn't just carry a cross, He carried me.

So much has been said of what happened at Calvary,
Oh but I believe,
He didn't just carry a cross,
Oh no, He didn't just carry a cross,
No He didn't just carry a cross, He carried me.
He carried me.
