The True Cross

I was looking at a beautiful wrought iron scroll work cross on my wall a few nights ago and the thought came to me that the true cross isn’t so beautiful. We must keep the truth in mind and not just look at pretty crosses. The True Cross has unimaginable beauty. Remember the meaning of the death and Resurrection of our Lord and Savior on this Resurrection Sunday.

The True Cross

The true Cross has no beauty that
We see with mortal eyes.
It’s rough and stained, but with our hearts
We see past that disguise.
The Cross is everlasting life
With Jesus Christ, our King.
His love poured out to cleanse our souls
Of each abhorrent thing.

The true Cross has no beauty that
The human eye can see,
But my soul sees the beauty in
Salvation bought for me.
The price was of it was very high:
It cost God’s only Son!
But when He died upon that cross
He knew His work was done.

The true Cross has no beauty that
The world could ever tell.
Without that Cross, however, we
Would all be left in hell.
The Cross and risen Savior mean
That heaven is in sight
If our eyes are on Jesus and
We walk with Him in light.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney
