Marks of the Cross Lyrics

Artist: Petra
Album: Wake-Up Call

Words by Bob Hartman
Based on Matthew 10:39, Luke 9:62

These days shallow and feeble resolve abound
And true devotion and passionate fervor are seldom found
But there are those who often feel they're all alone
Those of whose identities are known
By the mark of the crucified Son

Praying, caring, loving, sharing
These are the marks of the cross
Giving, bearing, feeling, daring
To lay down your life on the line
Forgetting what you leave behind
And willing to suffer the loss
Of the marks of the cross

These days the search for detachment and solitude
Lead to retreating to fortresses no one would dare intrude
Then there are those whose restless burdens start to show
Those who unmistakably most know
There's no crown 'til we suffer the cross

All our identity rests in the knowledge
Of who we€™re created to be
We are His workmanship, made in His image
For all of creation to see
The marks of His pain and His glory

'most know'- 4th line in 2nd last verse/stanza - should be 'must know'.

Please delete the nonsense characters in the last verse/stanza (should be 'Of who we're created to be')

(should 'passionate fervor' be 'passion and fervor'?)
