My Cross

Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto

the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

Psalm 51:1 KJV

~~~

In all my woe I ran to Man

Hoping for successful plan

“Show me options, and a way,

To fix my broken life today.”

~~~

But nothing could they do or say,

To end my pain and sad dismay.

In fact, their offers came to me,

With strings attached – nothing for free!

~~~

“Fix us! Fix us!” their deeds cried out.

“We, too, are bound by fears and doubt!”

“Dear God,” I cried. “What can I do?”

Man’s help is useless, only You…

~~~

Can bring the mercy that I need.

“Where do I go?” is what I plead.

Do for me what no man can,

Deliver by Your awesome hand!

~~~

~~~

THE CROSS, my child, is where to go…

That is where “free mercy” flows;

Where pain is healed, and woe erased.

THE CROSS is where you find such grace.

~~~

Man can’t give you what you need,

On that, you and I agree.

THE CROSS is where fear is undone;

THE CROSS is where REAL life’s begun.

~~~

Abundant life with joy and peace;

Freedom’s found and you’re released!

It’s all right here awaiting you,

And here is all that you must do…

~~~

Come, hungry, needy, wanting more…

That is what MY CROSS is for!

To heal your wounds – replace your strife,

With Living Water bringing LIFE!

~~

Come, drink your fill… and still, there’s more!

This is what MY CROSS is for.

A heart that’s healed – your life restored

At Grace and Mercy’s open door…

~~~

MY CROSS! That’s why I came and died.

Plunge beneath its crimson tide…

God’s grace is bountifully applied.

Mercy is free. Not one denied!
