Francesca Battistelli’s “Lead Me to the Cross”
Written by Christi Given | September 27, 2013
This week, I chose to cover a song covered by Francesca Battistelli and by duo Chris and Conrad, written by Brooke Fraser (Fraser is affiliated with Hillsong Church in Australia). I’m going to post two of the professional in-studio versions after my video—let me know which artist’s version you like best: Battistelli’s or Chris and Conrad’s!
Some of my favorite lyrics from “Lead Me to the Cross” are:
“You were as I
Tempted and trialed
The word became flesh
Bore my sin and death
Now you’re risen… Everything I once held dear, I count it all as lost…”
Here’s my cover (a short version of the song on an acoustic):

Check out Chris and Conrad’s version, too! I like the main singer’s voice!
