The Cross or the Fire

Lyrics by Darryl Mansir and Jeff Sutter, Music by Jeff Sutter

 

Iíve had discussions with people who did not believe

I told them the love of Jesus, they chose to be naive

They said I was a trapped animal, living a life as a fool

But to me, being a Christian is more than following rules

 

What if Iím right and what if youíre the fool

What if there is a Jesus who is coming back real soon

What if there is a devil, and an eternal burning hell

When you die, what will be the price of being a rebel

CHORUS:

Itís either the cross or the fire

            Itís your decision, itís one or the other

            Itís either the cross or the fire

            Will you burn in hell, or live with the Father

There is a glorious heaven where the true Christian will reside

There is a fiery hell where the unsaved will eternally fry

You can choose to be naive and live your own life

But the only way to heaven is through our Lord Jesus Christ

CHORUS:

            Itís either the cross or the fire

            Itís your decision, itís one or the other

            Itís either the cross or the fire

            Which of the two will be your master
