Stopping at the cross of Christ and
not believing… leads to the grave,
to impel one to live a life for simply
passion’s gain, no need to behave,
passing concerns of morality and
respect for another’s right to rave,
denial is for arrogance’s bliss.
Leaving the cross of Christ behind is as
if it were unimportant, nothing to crave,
is to slight the loving sacrifice He made…
giving no thought to the reason He gave
of Himself for us all, or even why God
would die for us to save us, a gift to stave…
ignorance tempted Judas’s kiss.
It is found at the cross by those contrite
salvation… before calm rough seas by wave,
the elements listened to this man, to respond
as if He knew them well… our need to lave,
sin is the reason He came, to free us from
the bonds of death, His are precious to save,
Love saves us from our own bias.
