Kiss The Cross

You have asked a high price of 

obedience on this journey

You lead many on

I see the cross

Everything dear to me

in a heap on the floor

Just when I thought I could 

finally move on

You would highlight another 

wilderness visit 

Paths of stripping 

A Gethsemane moment 

Excruciating pain

You were waiting for me 

to kiss the cross 

Rend my heart

Lay down my life

For You to move in

Everything I longed for

was hidden in my surrender 

A holy transference

to experience 

Your love for a sinner like me

Looking at the cross I only see Jesus…

The One my heart

unknowingly yearned for

Nothing of this world

holds my gaze anymore…
