    Default Lyrics for: Too Near The Cross by Dixie Echoes

    I am trying to find the lyrics for the song Too Near The Cross by Dixie Echoes. I have searched all over the internet with no luck!!!!!

    The title is "Too Near the Crown" instead of "Too Near The Cross"

    According to the Dixie Echoes discography on their Official Website, they didn't record a song titled "Too Near the Cross;" but they did record one on several albums titled "Too Near the Crown" (and in 1975, on the album called Today, it was listed as "Too Near the Crown To Lay Down the Cross." In my research, it is almost exclusively titled "Too Near the Crown."

    I have looked for the lyrics, but have not found them yet. I'll try to continue to search for them.

    P. S. There is a song called "Too Near the Cross" but it was not recorded by the Dixie Echoes. It was recorded by: Bible Women Music (label) in 2004, this probably isn't the one you are looking for but you may want to check it out:

    As best as I can do Quite a short song!



    Too near the cross, the soldier barks
    So we draw back, with a sigh
    We Marys and others who followed Jesus
    Cry as we watch him die.

    The men hang back, perhaps ashamed
    We'd all deserted Christ
    And now he hangs there with blood on his hands
    Blood coming from his side.

    He speaks so softly, forgives us all
    Surely this man is God, Oh, why is he dying?
    Will he come back? We're all in dismal fog.

    We'll go to market to buy the spices
    For his body in the tomb
    Soon after the Sabbath we'll find the grave
    Through our sorrow, gloom.
    होता है जो होना है ... वक़्त ही शायद खुदा है ...
    कौन कहता है आदमी अपनी किस्मत खुद लिखता है?
