FROM THE MANGER TO THE CROSS
Recorded by Cowboy Copas
INTRO: Last line of First Verse.
[D7] From The [G] Manger To The Cross, rugged [D] cross of calvary
The [A7] road that Jesus walked, for you and [D] me, all a-[D7] lone
[G] By this world forsaken, til He [D] shed His blood for me
From The [A7] Manger To The Cross, the rugged cross of cal-va-[D] ry.
[D] The story [D/F#] in The [D] bible, it's a [G] message sad but [D] true
The life our Savior lived on earth is [A7] told
[D] Found up-[D/F#] on the [D] pages of The [G] Master's book of [D] truth
Ev'ry word so [A7] precious to my [D] soul. [D7]
No earthly treasures did He own, He got no wealth or fame
Weary was the path, He had to trod
Here, He suffered many things, for this world knew Him not
He died upon the cross, The Son of God.
