Poems About the Cross of Christ

ABOVE AND BEYOND

Above and beyond, Christ Jesus did go,
Enduring great pain, as He suffered so.
By God the Father, our Saviour was sent,
Willingly He came, and to the cross He went.

Above and beyond, is Christ’s love for us,
All God’s children, to Him are precious.
Loving us, guiding us, each day anew,
Christ Jesus looks after, God’s chosen few.

Above and beyond, Christ goes for me and you,
With an awesome love, that’s forever true.
He will never leave, He will not forsake,
If a commitment to Him, we will make.

As I do consider my life this day,
Do I love Him enough? Do I obey?
Do I go above and beyond, for my Lord?
Or do I turn my back, on Him and His Word?

Above and beyond, NO! I do not go,
I fall so short, causing Christ sorrow.
I must love Him more, with my heart, soul and mind,
Then vast treasures of blessings, I will find.

ALL FOR THE LIKES OF ME

You left Heaven’s most splendid glory,
And came to Earth, for the likes of me.
You gave up comfort, for grief and pain,
That sinful me, might have eternal gain.

You left the beauty of Heaven above,
And came to man’s evil, all in love.
Tremendous sorrow and agony,
You did go thru’, for the likes of me.

You left Heaven, as great God and King,
And came to Earth, with simply nothing.
You became a humble Servant here,
For the likes of me, that I might not fear.

You left all of the Heavenly hosts,
Came to the sin, of the earthly coasts.
You left the praise and glory above,
And came down to the likes of me, in love.

You left it all; and here had no home,
Left riches; and in poverty, did roam.
Was not accepted, or recognized,
For the likes of me; ‘tis hard to surmise.

Wonderful Jesus, Saviour and Lord,
Died on the Cross, as told in your Word.
All done in great love, given so free,
To take sin away, from the likes of me.

AN AWESOME PLACE

The Cross of Christ was a place of shame,
But for that purpose, our Saviour came.
That Cross was a place of self-sacrifice,
And the work He accomplished did suffice.

The Cross was a place of God’s mercy,
God sent His Son, to die, for you and me.
That Cross was a place of pow’r, complete,
The sins of us all, it can delete.

The Cross is a place of atonement,
Jesus’ Blood, alone, is sufficient.
That Cross is where Christ did intercede,
My friend, Christ Jesus is all we need.

The Cross is a place of great promise,
Giving us the hope of Heaven’s bliss.
That Cross is a place of justice sure,
Righteousness promised by Christ so pure.

The Cross of Christ is where we must go,
To avoid the verdict of Hell below.
Kneel at His Cross, Christ will cleanse your soul,
And will grant you Heaven as your goal.

AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS

We must start at the foot of the Cross,
For our soul’s in danger, we’re at loss.
And when we kneel in that awesome place,
At that very moment, you’ll feel God’s grace.

Friend, let me tell you; you need to know,
There is Heaven; also Hell below!
Christ died on that Cross, to set you free,
From your vile sins, and Hell’s agony.

You’re God’s enemy, without the Cross,
Reject Christ, and to God, you are dross.
To the prison of Hell, He will send,
Just Christ’s work on the Cross, makes amends.

God hates those who try to enter in
The gates of Heaven, still full of sin.
Only His Son, can take sin away,
Go to the foot of the Cross, this day.

God has provided only ONE Way,
To enter Heaven’s wondrous array.
Accept what Jesus did for us all,
He paid our debt, so Hell won’t befall.

Go to the foot of the Cross this day,
His precious Blood washes sin away.
We each need to think more of His Cross,
Without our Saviour, we’re total loss.

BEHOLD, THE MAN

He was a Man of humility,
He left Heav’n’s glory, for you and me.
Scorned and despised by most men,
Friend, this will never happen again!

He was a Man of great suffering,
He bled and died, salvation to bring.
Died on that Cross, for me, and for you,
He had a special love, deep and true.

He was a Man, absolutely pure,
The perfect Lamb of God; our Saviour.
Just He can cleanse us with His precious Blood,
Kneel at the Cross; experience that Flood!

He is a Man of great dignity,
He’s KING OF KINGS; He’s nobility!
Highest in honor; He’s LORD OF LORDS,
Christ Jesus, worthy to be adored.

He is a Man of wondrous glory,
The One who holds Heaven’s only ‘key’.
Worship, adoration, radiant praise,
To this Man, our God, gratefully raise.

CALVARY’S CROSS

On Calvary’s Cross; He died for me,
Took away my sins, and set me free.
His suffering can’t ever be told,
Pain, for me, to bring me to God’s fold.

He was mocked; they did spit on Him,
Plucked out His beard; what awful sin!
They gave Him a ‘crown’ of sharp thorns,
A purple robe, His body adorned.

His own people wanted Him to die,
He wasn’t “Messiah”, this they deny!
They hated Him without any cause,
On His way to die, there was applause.


On Calvary’s Cross, He bled and died,
An awful death; He was crucified.
Unmercifully, they Christ did beat,
They drove huge nails in His hands and feet.

We all need to go back to that ‘Cross’,
Without His precious Blood, we’re all lost!
He died there to pay sin’s penalty,
And remove God’s wrath, for eternity.

CALV’RY’S TREE

The flames of Hell will never touch me,
For Christ bore my sins, on Calv’ry’s Tree.
I’ll stand at the Judgment, so secure,
An unworthy sinner; but O’ so sure!

From shackles of Satan, I am free,
I have perfect rest and liberty.
At Calv’ry’s Tree, my chains broke and fell,
Now His awesome love within me does dwell.

His priceless, pure Blood; my ransom paid,
For on Jesus, all my sins were laid.
From sin’s horrid bondage, I am free,
For Christ died for me, on Calv’ry’s Tree!

Calv’ry’s Tree has truly sealed my peace,
The sorrows Christ bore, made mine to cease!
His loving pow’r made all my sin be gone,
I am no longer the devil’s pawn!

Because Jesus died on Calv’ry’s Tree,
I have eternal life, waiting for me!
One day I’ll walk on that street of gold,
For Christ in my heart, I firmly hold!

CHRIST OF CALV’RY’S ROAD?, THE

Do you know the Christ of Calv’ry’s road?
The Christ that carried that heavy load?
Weary, stagg’ring; with head bowed low,
A Man acquainted with grief and sorrow.

Do you know the Christ of Calv’ry’s road?
The Christ that left His Heav’nly abode?
He condescended for you and me,
Paid our debt, and set our sinful soul free.

Do you know the Christ of Calv’ry’s road?
The Christ from whom that precious Blood flow’d?
He was despis’d; we esteem’d Him not,
Yet our very souls, this Christ, has bought.

Do you know the Christ of Calv’ry’s road?
He can help carry your greatest load.
Only this Christ can grant peace and rest,
Joy you will have; for you will be blest!

Do you know the Christ of Calv’ry’s way?
If not, He cries out, to you today!
This Christ can grant eternal life above,
Heav’n will be yours, by His wondrous love!

CONDESCENDING

Jesus did condescend for you and me,
Leaving His Home in Heav’n to set us free.
He came willingly to die on that Cross,
Bearing our sin, that we’d not be at loss.

Condescending, from “KING” to humble Man,
Voluntarily He came, to fill God’s plan.
He could have stayed in His Home of beauty,
But He came instead, in love, not duty.

He lowered Himself to our level,
So we could someday in His Home dwell.
Mocked and degraded; for us He died,
Only then, did God open Heav’n wide.

Do you condescend for any today?
Or just go about in your uppish way?
You must treat others, as you’d have them do,
We must be more like Christ; both me and you.

CROSS of CHRIST, The

To the cross of Christ, we all must go,
To avoid the depths, of Hell below.
God the Father, devised just one Plan,
Accept Christ Jesus, the Son of Man.

Christ left the glory, of Heav’n above,
All because, of His amazing love.
Jesus is God, and always has been,
Yet despised and rejected by men.

While on Earth as Man, Jesus was poor,
No place to lay His Head, yet He did endure.
He knew all things, so He knew He’d die,
His own people shouted: “Crucify!”

The cross of Christ, means so much to me,
Believing, gives life eternally.
Believing on Christ, and Him crucified,
God gives us His Spirit, to abide.

God forbid that I should e’er glory,
Save in the cross, of Christ’s victory.
I have peace, just thru’ the Blood of His cross,
What the world offers, I must count as loss.

Just the cross of Christ, makes me God’s friend,
Without Jesus, to Hell I’d descend.
We are not condemn’d, if we believe,
Believing not - - - God’s wrath we receive.

Eternal life in Heav’n, God offers to all,
But rejecting Christ’s cross, Hell will befall.
Christ paid it all, paid sin’s penalty,
Belief in His cross, gives us victory.

‘CROSS’ IS A REMINDER, THE

The ‘Cross’ is a reminder to my heart,
That from His love, I should not depart.
His love is so very precious to me,
He removed sin’s stain, gave victory!

The ‘Cross’ is a reminder to my soul,
That He is always in full control.
He so died, that I might go to Heaven,
Out of love; what a GIFT He has given!

The ‘Cross’ is a reminder to my mind,
That such love as His, you simply can’t find!
He died on that ‘Cross’ in sheer agony,
To save us from Hell; from God’s wrath, we’re free!

The ‘Cross’ reminds me to always thank Him,
For all things He brings; whether bright or dim.
There’s a silver lining in all clouds He sends,
All our hurts and deep heartaches, He mends.

The ‘Cross’ reminds me of joy and peace,
These blessings from God give great release.
The comfort and warmth these things surely give,
Make me so happy that my Saviour lives!

The ‘Cross’ reminds me of ne’er failing love,
Pure, everlasting love; from God above!
Love so marvelous, He gave us His Son,
If you accept Him; salvation is won!

CROSS OF CHRIST, THE

The Cross of Christ looms, ‘tween God and you,
Those to make it across, are very few.
Christ wants to be your Saviour and Friend,
But to most today, His Cross offends.

If you don’t believe this very day,
‘Tis the Cross of Christ, that’s in the way.
Christ is standing outside your heart’s door,
To give eternal life, and so much more!

Christ on the Cross, paid your way to Heav’n,
It’s a Gift of God, so freely giv’n.
Our Lord holds the key to Heaven’s gate,
But you must accept Him, ‘fore it’s too late.

The Cross of Christ can be a bridge for you,
Leading directly to God so true.
You are able to live in Glory Land,
But you must take hold of Jesus’ Hand.

On one side or the other, you stand,
Of the Cross of Christ, and Jesus’ Hand.
If you stand with Christ, you’ll go to Heav’n,
To stand beyond the Cross; Hell is giv’n.

DO YOU KNOW THE ‘CHRIST’?

Do you know the ‘Christ’ who was crucified?
Or are you ‘of the world’, and have denied?
He died on that Cross to save your soul,
He has power, and is in full control.

Do you know ‘Christ’, who died on that Cross?
If you don’t, your soul shall suffer loss.
He died to save you from God’s just wrath,
And take you from Hell’s agonizing path.

He came to pay a debt, He didn’t owe,
Redeem us from Hell, and God’s love bestow.
He came, for our debt, we could not pay,
I’m grateful that in Heav’n He didn’t stay.

Do you know ‘Christ’ the martyred One?
He’s our precious Jesus, God’s own Son!
He died, ‘tis true; but God raised Him again,
Was resurrected; the first of all men.

Do you know ‘Christ’, Shepherd of God’s sheep?
Or is your soul, to Him, fast asleep?
Friend, I pray you’ll awaken today,
If you plan on Heav’n, He’s the only ‘WAY’!

You must know ‘Christ’, our Saviour and Lord,
He’s clearly portrayed in God’s Word!
He can give you the ‘key’ to Heav’n’s gate,
Trust and accept Him, ‘fore it’s too late!

DYING ON THAT CROSS

He was betrayed by a ‘trusted’ friend,
He knew Judas would betray in the end.
False witnesses did rise up and accuse,
But He opened not His mouth to refuse.

He gave His back to that cruel scourge,
Unmerciful they were; without urge!
Pain and agony, beyond compare,
His bones did look upon Him and stare.

They plucked the hair from off His cheeks,
Mocked and insulted; but He was meek.
Made Him a ‘crown’ of sharpest thorns,
Crushed it on His Head to adorn.

As He trod Calvary’s road that day,
The jeering crowd barely gave Him way.
Such awful hate, made His heart to break,
Couldn’t they see, this was for their sake?

That relentless scourging, left Him so weak,
He’d lost much Blood, He could barely speak.
As He struggled to carry His ‘Cross’,
He ne’er did think, all this to be loss.

When He reached the top of Calv’ry’s hill,
That jeering throng, was with Him still!
They drove huge nails in His hands and feet,
Making so sure their job was complete.

He died on that Cross, to save your soul,
Most don’t think so, but He’s in control.
Only He can grant the ‘key’ to Heav’n’s gate,
trust and accept Him, ‘fore it’s too late.

FOOT OF THE CROSS, THE

When at the foot of the cross I knelt,
O’erwhelming grief for my sins I felt.
But that great burden roll’d far away,
As I knelt at His cross, that special day.

As I knelt there, peace flooded my soul,
Welcome relief, for conflict took its toll.
Each day anew was worry and stress,
But kneeling there, God truly did bless.

Kneeling at His cross, the tears did flow,
Removing from me, all my sorrow.
Tension and strife had never left me,
But as I knelt, these things did flee.

Joy rushed o’er me, as I did kneel,
‘Twas so amazing, how I did feel.
Jesus’ Presence was ever so near,
Kneeling there, He cast out all my fear.

My life has chang’d, since that day gone by,
For I no longer, my Lord deny.
He made a new person out of me,
He made me a child of God eternally.

To be “born again” you too must go,
And humbly kneel in the cross’ shadow.
Tell Jesus: “I trust my all to Thee,”
And He’ll give you life eternally.

FROM CALVARY

Such lonely cries He made, from Calvary,
Not ev’n one did aid, in His agony!
What He did suffer, is beyond compare,
Yet most don’t think of this; worse, they don’t care!

He suffered beatings beyond belief,
Not one other person, had that much grief.
He looked for comforters; yet He found none,
Didn’t they realize, this was God’s Son?

He was despised and rejected of men,
A Man of sorrows; the world did condemn.
Stricken, afflicted, and smitten of God,
His cries from Calvary, for the world abroad.

He carried our sorrows, and bore our griefs,
And not ev’n the Father, gave Him relief!
The Lord laid on Him, our iniquity,
An ultimate price, to set our soul free!

Full of heaviness; reproach broke His Heart,
Their insults and mocking, would not depart.
They then pierced both, His Feet and Hands,
They crucified Him! He died for all lands!

His sinless soul was an off’ring for sin,
Only thru’ CHRIST can salvation begin!
God’s Righteous Servant justifies many,
For He has borne all our iniquity!

GETHSEMANE

On the Mount of Olive’s western slope,
Jesus went to pray, to help Him cope.
The garden was called “Gethsemane,”
O’er the brook of Cedron, on the way.

The usual place of His secret prayer,
Solitude was what, He needed there.
Holy mem’ries there, His faith did aid,
Many heart-felt prayers from there were made.

With Him, He wanted He wanted His friends to be,
That one last time, in Gethsemane.
His soul was engross’d in deep sorrow,
His heart was heavy from all the woe.

To the disciples He said: “Watch and pray,
But they fell asleep, when He went away.
In agony He prayed, more earnestly,
Kneeling there alone, in Gethsemane.

Take this cup away, if it be Thy will,
An angel appear’d, and gave strength to fill.
His sweat was as it were, great drops of blood,
In Gethsemane, was the Son of God!

Then came Judas, this Man to betray,
Drew near to kiss Him, then went his way.
Then men took Him from Gethsemane,
And He died on the cross of Calvary.

GO TO THE FOOT OF HIS CROSS

To the foot of the cross, we must go,
To be relieved of pain and sorrow.
Kneel there, my dear friend, kneel there today,
And all your sin will be washed away.

Kneel at His cross, cast your pride away,
Humbly admit, you need Him today.
Admit you are wrong, and God is right,
Then you will walk in His glorious Light.

When you kneel at His cross; this I know,
Your sins will be washed, whiter than snow.
You shall be washed by His precious Blood,
Sins are gone; washed away by the Flood.

Throw away your pride; at His cross kneel,
A divine experience, you shall feel.
Never again will you be the same,
You are now God’s child; in Jesus’ Name.

HE AROSE

He arose from the grave; He arose!
Can you imagine? can you suppose?
No way could death ever hold Him there,
He rose from that grave, are you aware?

He arose from the grave; He’s alive!
He rose from that grave; He did revive!
The pow’r of death could not hold Him there,
Not one any where, can ev’n compare!

For our many dark sins, He did die,
The cries of His own were “Crucify.”
To justify us He rose again,
That we might live; have eternal gain.

He rose from the grave; are you aware?
He rose; for death could not hold Him there.
Christ is now sitting at God’s right Hand,
To grant victory to ev’ry land.

HE CAME TO PAY OUR DEBT

Christ came to pay a debt He didn’t owe,
Came to Earth, God’s love to bestow.
Left the glory of Heav’n, just to die,
For the sins of man, make us awry.

He paid our debt, to set us all free,
Free from God’s wrath, and sin’s penalty.
‘Twas a debt, not one of us could pay,
So, in God’s wisdom, Christ was the “Way”.

Christ came in love, to save us from Hell,
He does not want any, there to dwell.
Just trust and accept God’s only Son,
And friend, eternal life, has begun!

He Condescended

Jesus did condescend, for you and me,
Leaving His Home in Heav’n, to set us free.
He came willingly, to die on that cross,
Bearing our sin, that we’d not be at loss.

Condescending, from KING to humble Man,
Voluntarily He came, to fill God’s plan.
He could have stayed, in His Home of beauty,
But He came instead, in love, not duty!

He lowered Himself, to our level,
So we could someday, in His Home dwell.
Mocked and degraded, for us He died,
Only then, did God open Heav’n wide.

Do you condescend, for any today?
Or just go about, in your uppish way?
You must treat others, as you’d have them do,
We must be more like Christ, both me and you.

What amzing and abundant love Jesus has for us!
He died on that horrid cross . . . for us!

HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD

Christ was the “Lamb” who died on the Cross,
Without His death, we ALL would be lost!
Without spot or blemish; He was sin free,
He shed His precious Blood, for you and me.

Just His precious Blood can save your soul,
For of Heav’n, only He has control.
If you try to gain Heav’n on your own,
The gate of Hell to you will be shown.

Only His precious Blood, blemish free,
Can save from dark Hell, both you and me.
Only God’s “Lamb” can take sin away,
He’ll make us clean, for Heaven some day.

We can’t obtain the key to Heav’n’s gate,
Not by works we do, whether small or great!
Only His precious Blood turns that key,
To eternal life, for you and me.

Please don’t turn your back on our dear Lord,
He’s our ONLY Saviour; don’t discard!
Don’t reject His wondrous, precious Blood,
Instead, be cleansed, by this great Flood!

Turn to Jesus, please do it today,
If Heav’n’s your goal, there’s NO other way!
Only His precious Blood can save you,
Believe and accept; He will rescue.

Allow Christ to lead you, on the right path!

His precious Blood, our souls did redeem
Without a blemish, and of high esteem!

JESUS, AND JESUS ALONE

Jesus paid the full and total price,
His own sinless self did sacrifice.
He died on that Cross on Calv’ry’s path,
Only this great work relieved God’s wrath.

Jesus work on the Cross; this alone,
For all our sins, did fully atone.
Never by works done by you and me,
Nothing we do pays sin’s penalty.

All have sinned ‘fore Almighty God,
None is righteous, as Earth they trod.
From all sin does God hide His holy Face,
Only ‘JESUS’ can bring us to His grace!

We must believe ALL that God does say,
And not try to find ‘another’ way!
In His ‘Book’ the record is good and true,
ONLY HIS SON can save and rescue.

“I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life,”
Friend, without Jesus, you shall have strife.
NO ONE gets to the Father in Heav’n,
Except by His Son, whom He hath giv’n.

Just Jesus, alone, not one thing more,
Will get you to that Heav’nly shore.
Nary a work; nor person so great,
Will get you a passport to Heav’n’s gate.

You must accept Jesus, He alone,
For no one else, your sins can atone!
If you won’t believe God; He gives Hell,
And there for eternity, you shall dwell.

JESUS, PRECIOUS JESUS

Jesus, precious Jesus, He did save me,
Sav’d me from God’s wrath, and sin’s penalty.
With His precious Blood, our sins did atone,
We’d go o Hell, if He’d left us alone.

Jesus, precious Lamb, without blemish or spot,
Sacrificed for us; our souls, He bought!
Redeeming us from our iniquity,
Washed us in His Blood, made us free.

Jesus, precious Son, of Almighty God,
He is not, and never will be, a fraud!
Sent by the Father, from His throne above,
Our precious Saviour, came to Earth in love!

Jesus, precious Saviour, you have much love,
You came to take my place; left Heav’n above.
Coming out of love, and necessity,
Only thru’ Jesus, can we have vict’ry.

Jesus, precious Lord, master of all things,
He has power; let all Creation sing!
The day shall come, every knee shall bow,
To the Name of Christ Jesus; not like now!

Do you know our precious Jesus this day?
He has control; we must trust and obey.
Only Jesus has the ‘key’ to Heav’n’s gate,
Believe God, and trust Him, ‘fore it’s too late!

KNEEL AT HIS CROSS

In humility, at His cross I kneel,
The love flowing down, feels e’er so real.
Faith alone, led me to that awesome place,
Where there’s abundant compassion and grace.

It was at His cross, that I first could see,
The glorious Truth ‘bout eternity.
I had walked in darkness, e’er so long,
On that big broad road, with the devil’s throng.

I’m so glad I threw all my pride away,
And knelt at Your cross, that special day.
My life has changed, from darkness to light,
As I walk with You, in the pow’r of your might.

My ears were opened, as at Your cross I knelt,
I just can’t explain, how joyous I felt!
A brand new creation, You made of me,
You made me God’s child, for eternity.

The cross is our altar, where we should kneel,
‘Tis the only place, where our soul will heal.
Jesus paid the price, we all should have paid,
All our horrendous sins, on Him, were laid.

Jesus paid our debt, we could never pay,
The will of His Father, He did obey.
He took our place, went where we should have been,
He paid the full penalty, of our sin.

To our altar, to the cross we must go,
Sincere words, from deep in our heart should flow.
Kneel at His cross, with a sacrifice of praise,
As honor to Him, we gratefully raise.

Our altar is His cross, we must go there,
If we want, God the Father’s love and care.
Cast out all pride, for humble we must be,
If we ever want, life eternally.

You can’t get to Heav’n, except thru’ the cross,
Without Jesus, ‘twould be a total loss.
A worldly life with Satan, leads to Hell,
Without Jesus, it is there you shall dwell.

To the cross of Christ Jesus, you must go,
To avoid the Lake of Fire, far below.
If you want Heav’n, just Jesus has the key,
Kneel at His cross, for life eternally.

NAIL SCARRED HANDS

Have you ever thought ‘bout our Saviour?
Dying on that Cross; so sinless and pure?
I oft’ think of His nail scarred Hands,
Scarred; for us, to loose sin’s hard bands.

I’ve thought about His Hands, with those scars,
That mankind, His holy Body did mar.
He suffered death that belonged to me,
Shed His precious Blood, to set me free!

Each and every person does sin,
There’s NO way, alone, God’s grace you’ll win.
Without Jesus, you’re God’s enemy!
You’ll end up in Hell, for eternity.

But there is some very good news, friend,
Hell does not have to be your final end!
This ‘JESUS’, with those nail scarred Hands,
Can give Heaven’s key; and loose sin’s bands.

Only JESUS can relieve God’s wrath,
Without Him, you’re on Hell’s path.
Only trust in Jesus makes you God’s friend,
Only Jesus, your soul can defend!

The only man-made things in Heav’n afar,
Are on those precious Hands; those nail scars.
Place your hand in His nail scarred Hand,
He’ll save your soul; He’ll loose your bands.

There is nothing I can do, I know,
My best would place me in Hell below.

Without Jesus, we’re God’s enemy,
Dark Hell would be our final decree.
There is nothing, we could ever do,
All our works, God would curse, or beshrew.

Nothing that we do, or say, or try,
Can ever in God’s eyes, justify.
Just Christ’s precious Blood can reconcile,
All our efforts, will only defile.

Jesus did it all, for us, back then,
On the Cross, He paid for the sins of men.
There is nothing you or I can do,
Just accept by faith, His love so true.

ON CALV’RY’S ROAD

Jeering crowds did compass and enclose Him,
Things thru’ Blood and tears to Him looked dim.
He looked for pity; none could be found,
Looking for comfort, instead they did hound.

They had no mercy as they beat our Lord,
His bones were exposed they’d cut him so hard.
All they that saw Him laughed Him to scorn.
His Head was Bloody from His ‘crown’ of thorns.

His visage was marred more than any man,
Despised, rejected, Him they did ban.
Stricken, afflicted, and smitten of God,
He bore our sins as Calv’ry’s road He trod.

Unending reproach did break His heart,
But from this shame He did not depart.
He became a stranger to His brothers,
Wasn’t recognized by them, or others.

He was so weak from the Blood He had lost,
But not e’vn once, did He regret the cost.
He just kept struggling up Calv’ry’s road,
He carried that ‘Cross’; such a heavy load.

When He reached the top of Calv’ry’s hill,
The crowd shouting terrible insults still.
They drove huge nails in His feet and hands,
He died in great agony, for all lands.

He took on the sins of the whole world,
As He hung on that ‘Cross’, our sins unfurled.
He paid that price to redeem our souls,
Our Lord and Saviour is in full control.

THE ‘CROSS’ IS A REMINDER

The ‘Cross’ is a reminder to my heart,
That from His love, I should not depart.
His love is so very precious to me,
He removed sin’s stain, gave victory!

The ‘Cross’ is a reminder to my soul,
That He is always in full control.
He so died, that I might go to Heaven,
Out of love; what a GIFT He has given!

The ‘Cross’ is a reminder to my mind,
That such love as His, you simply can’t find!
He died on that ‘Cross’ in sheer agony,
To save us from Hell; from God’s wrath, we’re free!

The ‘Cross’ reminds me to always thank Him,
For all things He brings; whether bright or dim.
There’s a silver lining in all clouds He sends,
All our hurts and deep heartaches, He mends.

The ‘Cross’ reminds me of joy and peace,
These blessings from God give great release.
The comfort and warmth these things surely give,
Make me so happy that my Saviour lives!

The ‘Cross’ reminds me of ne’er failing love,
Pure, everlasting love; from God above!
Love so marvelous, He gave us His Son,
If you accept Him; salvation is won!

THE CROSS OF CHRIST

The Cross of Christ looms, ‘tween God and you,
Those to make it across, are very few.
Christ wants to be your Saviour and Friend,
But to most today, His Cross offends.

If you don’t believe this very day,
‘Tis the Cross of Christ, that’s in the way.
Christ is standing outside your heart’s door,
To give eternal life, and so much more!

Christ on the Cross, paid your way to Heav’n,
It’s a Gift of God, so freely giv’n.
Our Lord holds the key to Heaven’s gate,
But you must accept Him, ‘fore it’s too late.

The Cross of Christ can be a bridge for you,
Leading directly to God so true.
You are able to live in Glory Land,
But you must take hold of Jesus’ Hand.

On one side or the other, you stand,
Of the Cross of Christ, and Jesus’ Hand.
If you stand with Christ, you’ll go to Heav’n,
To stand beyond the Cross; Hell is giv’n.

THE CROWN AND CROSS WERE HIS

They borrowed a manger, to use as a bed,
For the precious Babe Jesus, to lay His Head!
They borrowed a colt, for Christ Jesus to ride,
A colt on which no one, had e’er been astride!

Christ borrowed bread, high on the mountain side,
That the crowd’s hunger, might be satisfied!
He borrowed two little fish, from a young lad,
In all the people there, ‘twas all to be had.

Jesus borrowed a boat, in which He sat and taught,
For the great multitude, His vast wisdom sought!
He borrowed a friend’s house, that He might rest,
They lovingly obliged, to this most special Guest!

They borrowed a room, the Last Supper to eat,
An Upper Room, that was high up off the street.
From a very rich man, they borrowed a grave,
Jesus’ sepulcher was a small, lonely cave.

The crown of thorns they crushed, on His precious Head,
Was not a borrowed crown, but His own instead!
The crown of thorns He wore, was His very own,
That dreadful, horrendous crown; was His alone.

The cross that He carried, so very painfully,
Is the cross where He died, in great agony.
That old rugged cross He bore, was His very own,
The cross where He bled and died, was His alone.

THE CRUCIFIED

Our eyes need a beacon, our tired feet a guide,
There’s One who qualifies; that is the Crucified!
We hunt for a meaning to all life’s mystery,
There’s One who can help; as He whispers: “Follow Me.”

There’s One who can comfort, in our deepest pain,
‘Tis the One who died on the cross, that life we could attain!
There’s One who can make us, God the Father’s friend,
The Blood He shed on the cross, in God’s eyes makes amends!

Everyone needs a shoulder, on which they can cry,
A Place of comfort, to which we’ll never be denied!
There’s One available, whether it be day or night,
I can hear Him whisper: “I will make things bright!”

Our tired aching body, needs a place to rest,
There’s One who qualifies; He’s been thru’ ev’ry test!
He offers peace and joy; we will never be denied,
There’s One well equipped; it is Christ, the Crucified!

There will come a time, when we hear Christ call our name,
High in the clouds; this time glory, no more shame!
If we believe that on that cross, Christ for us died,
Our new bodies will be Heav’n bound, with the Crucified!

THE FOOT OF THE CROSS

When at the foot of the cross I knelt,
O’erwhelming grief for my sins I felt.
But that great burden roll’d far away,
As I knelt at His cross, that special day.

As I knelt there, peace flooded my soul,
Welcome relief, for conflict took its toll.
Each day anew was worry and stress,
But kneeling there, God truly did bless.

Kneeling at His cross, the tears did flow,
Removing from me, all my sorrow.
Tension and strife had never left me,
But as I knelt, these things did flee.

Joy rushed o’er me, as I did kneel,
‘Twas so amazing, how I did feel.
Jesus’ Presence was ever so near,
Kneeling there, He cast out all my fear.

My life has chang’d, since that day gone by,
For I no longer, my Lord deny.
He made a new person out of me,
He made me a child of God eternally.

To be “born again” you too must go,
And humbly kneel in the cross’ shadow.
Tell Jesus: “I trust my all to Thee,”
And He’ll give you life eternally.

THE CHRIST OF CALV’RY’S ROAD?

Do you know the Christ of Calv’ry’s road?
The Christ that carried that heavy load?
Weary, stagg’ring; with head bowed low,
A Man acquainted with grief and sorrow.

Do you know the Christ of Calv’ry’s road?
The Christ that left His Heav’nly abode?
He condescended for you and me,
Paid our debt, and set our sinful soul free.

Do you know the Christ of Calv’ry’s road?
The Christ from whom that precious Blood flow’d?
He was despis’d; we esteem’d Him not,

THOSE THREE DARK HOURS

When Jesus hung on that cross, without ev’n one friend,
Those three hours of darkness, I cannot comprehend!
‘Twas a private time, between the Father and Son,
When my sin debt was paid, and Christ’s battle was won!

There is NO way, I can comprehend Jesus’ love,
Coming to Earth to die, leaving Heaven above!
He left the comfort of Heav’n’s safety, to endure great agony,
For the likes of a nobody, like sinful me!

NO earthly mortal, this kind of love could possess,
We are filled way too much, with worldly wickedness.
We are blessed indeed, to access this kind of love,
In this evil, immoral world, of push and shove!

In those three hours of darkness, Christ took on my sins,
The devil was jubilant, he thought he would win!
But it was Christ Jesus, who had the victory,
In those three hours of darkness; that Godly mystery!

Jesus paid my full sin debt, in those dark three hours,
Ne’er did He doubt, fear, hesitate, waver or cower!
He tolerated all, that agony and pain,
Ne’er did He protest, object, grumble or complain.

The suffering that He endured, for you and for me,
Was love indescribable, that set our souls free!
Jesus’ love surpasses all, that we could ever know,
We’re privileged indeed, that on us His love does flow!

Have you e’er considered, those three hours of darkness?
When our precious Saviour, brought us such great success?
Have you thanked Him, for providing the only Way,
That we might access, Heav’n’s glorious beauty one day?

(Mk.10:21; Jn.10:11; 11:3; 13:1,34; 14:6,21; 15:9,13; 19:26; 20:2; Rom.5:7; 8:35-38; 2 Cor. 5:14; Gal.2:20; Eph.3:19; 5:2,25; 1 Tim.1:14; 1 Jn.3:16) Battle between Christ and Satan: Gen.3:15; The devil’s seed: (Mat.3:7, 12:34; 23:33; Jn.8:44;  Acts 13:10; 1 Jn.3:8,10). Her seed: Ps.132:11; Isa.7:14; Jer.31:22; Mic.5:3; Mat.1:23,25; Lk.1:32-35,76; Gal.4:4). Gift Of God: (Mat.7:11; Jn.4:10; 6:32; Acts 8:20;  15:11; Rom.5:15,18; 6:23; 8:32; 11:29;
1 Cor.7:7; 2 Cor.9:15; Eph.2:8; 2 Tim.1:6; 1 Jn.4:9; 5:11)
That this general darkness was totally supernatural is evident that it happened at the Passover, which was celebrated ONLY at the full moon, a time in which it was impossible for the sun to be eclipsed, natural eclipses happening only at the time of the new moon.

THREE CROSSES . . . Mar.2008 Message

On Calvary’s hill, three horrid crosses stand,
Three men hang there, nail’d in their feet and hands.
The piercing of the nails, impels them to cry,
Three on crosses hang, silhouettes against the sky.

The ONE in the midst, spoke words brief and few,
“Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.”
Words from parched lips, from ONE who truly cares,
Interceding for His enemies, in this short prayer!

On either side of Christ, were two common thieves,
The one would soon obtain, an eternal reprieve.
“Remember me, O Lord,” repently he cries,
“Today thou shalt be with Me in Paradise.”

John stood with His mother, her comfort to seek,
This beloved disciple, then heard Jesus speak:
“Behold, thy mother; woman, behold thy son,”
These tender words from their greatly loved ONE.

As Christ hung dying in anguish, sad and alone,
This ONE with the purest heart, this world has e’er known.
A woeful utterance bursts forth; heart-felt agony,
My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?

I thirst; His thirst was almost more than He could bear,
But vinegar was all that was offered there.
But the breaking Heart, of the Saviour of man,
Would not retreat, from God’s redemption Plan!

It is finished,” His Work on the Cross was done,
This humble Man, who was truly God’s own Son!
Father, into Thy Hands,” our precious Saviour cries,
I commend My Spirit;” and then so bravely dies!

But is He dead? Nay! Our Lord Jesus did arise!
O that we would shout it to the highest skies!
Nothing could hold Him, behind His tomb’s dark door,
He lives! He lives! And He will live for ever more!

Our Lord spoke seven memorable words from the cross: (1) Luke 23:34; (2) Luke 23:43; (3) John 19:26; (4) Matthew 27:46, Mark 15:34; (5) John 19:28; (6) John 19:30;
(7) Luke 23:46.
Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.
Luke 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.(KJV)
Luke 23:46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. (KJV)
John 19:26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! (KJV)
John 19:27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home. John 19:28-30 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. [29] Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. [30] When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. (KJV)
Crucifixion Scripture: Mat. 27:27-54; Mk.15:22-34; Luke 23:32-46; John 19:14-42; Micah 5:2; Isaiah 7:14; 9:1,2; 50: 5-7; 52:13-15; ch.53; Hos. 11:1; Ps. 2:2; 41:9; ch.22 & 69.

VESTMENTS OF SHAME

Glorious, royal robes, did not one heart subdue,
It was vestments of shame, put on for me and you.
It wasn’t goats or bulls, on the altar bled,
It was Jesus’ Blood, on the cross that He shed.

It was our Lord’s meekness and humility,
That gained for us all, life eternally.
The life of a Servant, Christ took upon Him,
Allowing our hope, to never grow dim.

It wasn’t earthly riches, that paid the price,
Christ’s precious life’s Blood, was the supreme Sacrifice.
Christ’s holy righteousness, to us is applied,
When we trust and believe, we are justified.

Christ never on this Earth, did store up treasures,
In Christ’s mind instead, was our eternal pleasure.
Jesus owned not a place, to lay His dear Head,
But His being poor, never caused Him any dread.

His vestments of shame, and great humility,
Paid the price we couldn’t pay; life eternally.
Glorious regal robes, never paid the price,
‘Twas Christ’s death on the cross, His willing Sacrifice.

WHAT HELD HIM THERE?

He hung on that Cross; so bleak and bare,
As He suffered; “What held Him there?”
Was it nails they drove in His Hands?
Or was it great love, for all lands?

He could have called legions of angels,
To take Him down, and His agony quell.
Huge rusty nails in His hands and feet,
Did not hold Him there; ‘twas LOVE so sweet!

Great wondrous love, giv’n for me and you,
Love bound Him secure; vast love and true!
He bought our souls with His precious Blood,
Relieved God’s wrath with that crimson Flood!

Those nails did not hold Him to that tree,
“What held Him there?” love for you and me!
Love so very willing and so true,
Deep heart-felt love, we can’t construe!
