Three Stark Crosses.



There are three stark crosses on a lonely hill
The sun casts a shadow of grey
God’s precious Son hung on the centre one
The sun didn’t shine that day.

The sky was black when God’s only Son died
The veil of the temple was torn
From the top to the bottom, so only God
Could have ripped it down to the floor.

How could You let Your only Son die
Just for sinful ungrateful man?
What have we done to deserve such a great love
Such a sacrifice and short life span.

My God, my God,! Jesus cried out that day
Now we make the same cry too
My God please forgive me, wash my sins away
I want to be worthy of You.

Lord, I pledge You my life, my heart and my dreams
That’s all I can offer to You
Please take me and use me for I want to be
A servant who is worthy of You.

Make me a servant who is worthy of You.

W.B. March 2009.

I am thinking about this one Wyn... To be honest with you I never think about it anymore whether I am worthy or not... I KNOW that I am because Jesus died for me. My life was worth His life, somehow. And I know that's incredible! THANK YOU Lord.

Thanks Marja.
I feel so unworthy and that is the measure of my gratitude to him.
Thank you for your continued friendship. I am feeling the silence since I left SL.
I hope I am not totally forgotten by some of those many friends I had there. My health was suffering and I need to keep strong to look after Geoff.
