The Cross is Special

by Paul Mayes Jamar

Some are inspired by a football game most of all,
glass slipper, class ring, or a homecoming ball.

Why not embrace the symbol of the Old Rugged Cross,
Submit to its meaning by making Jesus your boss?

Give Him control of your life in every way.
Come, ask Jesus to save you now. What do you say?

It comes with a free ticket to Heaven soon,
And an abundant life now free from Hell’s doom.

We’re in enemy territory under attack
By a defeated enemy, but Jesus has your back!

I fail but always fall at Jesus’ nail-scarred feet,
Seeking forgiveness and mercy at His throne’s seat.

Which He grants without delay but I will pay
For my lack of not using His gifts, at Judgement Day.

He truly is my Savior, Master, Lord, and King!
For Him I would, if I could, do anything.

So, the symbol of the cross is special to me.
It’s life, liberty, and hope in Heaven to be.
