Cross Of Gold
by Michael W. Smith

Album: Best of Michael W. Smith
by Michael W. Smith

Where do you stand
What is your statement
What is it you're trying to say

What's in your hand
What's in your basement
What's in the cards you don't play

Are you holding the key
Or are you intending
To pick the lock of heaven's gate

It's confusing to me
The message you're sending
And I don't know if I can relate

What's your line
Tell me why you wear your cross of gold
State of mind
Or does it find a way into your soul

Is it a flame
Is it a passion
A symbol of love living in you
(Living in you)

Or is it a game
Religion in fashion
Some kind of phase you're going through

We all travel the extremes
From cellar to rafter
Looking for a place in the sun

So I'm trying to see
What you're headed after
But I don't know where you're coming from

Whoa, oh, what's your line
Tell me why you wear your cross of gold
State of mind
Or does it find a way into your soul

What's your line
Tell me why you wear your cross of gold

For some it's simply something
To wear around your neck
Just a chain, jewelry
It's a decoration, it's an icon, a proclamation
An icon of what
For some it's simply something
To wear around your neck, just a chain
It means a lot more than that to me

What's your line
Tell me why you wear your cross of gold
State of mind
Or does it find a way into your soul

What's your line
Tell me why you wear your cross of gold
State of mind
Or does it find a way into your soul

Wanna tell me why, please tell me why
You wear your cross of gold
