What is the Cross

What is the cross?

Beautiful and terrible,

awesome and humbling.

It’s rough and slick,

drenched in your blood.

Who would have thought

that you’d die there.

What is the cross?

Fearful and freeing,

horrible and wonderous.

It’s more than wood,

It’s the key to my salvation.

What is the cross?

Is it torturous and holy,

or cursed and hopeless?

It was your death

and my new life.

What is the cross?

Can you tell me

what the cross is to you?
