Author's Note: So here I am again, writing yet another poem when I should be doing my other stories...hehehe. Anyways, I was contacted by one of the Elders at my church. He wanted me to do a piece of work that showed "What the Cross means to me". So I wrote this and presented it on Easter. I hope you guys like it. I had a blast writing it!


To know that I am loved

To know that I am safe

To know that I can live without fear

To know that I can be forgiven

To know that I am saved again and again

To know that He loves me

To know that He died for me

To know that He gives Mercy

To know that He gives out Justice

To know that He is with me at all times

To know that He'll never let me down

To know that He will never hand me more then I can handle

To know that He's coming again

That's what the cross means to me

Living in fear

Living in sorrow

Living in despair

Living in pain

Living in mystery

How you changed that

Living in security

Living in happiness

Living in hope

Living in comfort of mind

Living in peace

That's what the cross means to me

Your beauty is in everything

In all that you have made

Your powers flow through your children

Your chosen ones

Your very spirit lives in me

Lives in those who chose to believe in you

Your light shines through the darkest of nights

Even through hells dark passageways

Your faith is in those who you live in

In those who chose you

Your justice makes right

Makes those who do wrong pay for their wrong

Your Holiness flows through our veins

Through those who died with your Son

Your jealously never wants me to praise another

Who would want to?

Your Wisdom never leaves me in the dark

It is ingrained in my own mind

Your Infiniteness, I will never be able to comprehend

I will never understand for I am just a human

Your Sovereignty is everlasting

None shall surpass you

Your Mercifulness gives me second chances that I do not deserve

Yet I am your child that you care about enough to do so

Your Longsuffering makes you slow to anger and gives out more warnings then we should need

For you long for us to be with you

Your wrath makes those who oppose you shake in fear

For none can defeat you

Your immunity allows you to never change

For you are the same today, yesterday and forever

Your Omniscience allows you to know all

You know the inner most stuff about me that no one else does

Your Omnipresence allows you to be everywhere at the time

You're with me at school and with that scared orphan in Africa

Your Eternalness means that you never were not and you never will be a was

Meaning that you will never die and there was never a time in which you were not

That's what the cross means to me

Being with you till the end of the age

That is what the cross means to me
