Trading a Cross For a Crown

Verse 1:
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 and 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
I'm trading this ole cross in for a crown

Verse 2:
I can hear the angels cheer me on and see the ones that have reached home
They now await for us to win this race
A banquet like we've never known will be held at God's royal throne
There we'll be rewarded for our faith

(Repeat Chorus)
