The Lads – Cross With A Pillow lyrics

[Verse 1]
So you want to be a Christian
You want to follow Christ
You have spare time on Sunday
And you think it would be nice
Do you know to follow Christ
There’s a cross you must bear?
You say “this one here looks nice,
Maybe that over there”

[Verse 2]
So you go to church on Sunday
And tithe your ten percent
But your heart, it has been hardened
As cold as the cement
That the needy know so well
As they walk alone
All because you’d like to stay
Inside your comfort zone

[Chorus]
You want a cross with a pillow
A cross with a pillow
A cross with a pillow
And a hill with a view
You want a cross with a pillow
A cross with a pillow
A cross with a pillow
And a hill with a view

[Verse 3]
So you’ve come to serve the Lord
Committed on your knees
To keep on playing your golf game
To keep on sipping tea
Did you think he was another club
To fill in your life?
With no real inconvenience
Just comfort and strife

[Chorus]
You want a cross with a pillow
A cross with a pillow
A cross with a pillow
And a hill with a view
You want a cross with a pillow
A cross with a pillow
A cross with a pillow
And a hill with a view

Here we go! Here we go!
Here we go! Here we go!
Here we go!

[Verse 4]
So you thought it would be easy
You’re right, but there’s a catch
To this cross we bear for Jesus
Our hearts must be attached
So if you’re looking for a life
That’s complacent and nice
Well you’d better not look
On the cross of sacrifice

[Chorus]
Ask for a cross with a pillow
A cross with a pillow
A cross with a pillow
And a hill with a view
You get a cross with a pillow
A cross with a pillow
A cross with a pillow
And a hill of a view
