Ash Wednesday to Pentecost

Facets of the Cross

  1. May we stand before the Cross
    In gratitude and grief,
    Inconsolable with pain,
    Inarticulate with relief.
  2. May we walk behind the Cross
    In reverence and sin,
    Meandering in our prayer,
    Cowardly to give in.
  3. May we kneel beneath the Cross
    In reverence and awe,
    Approximate in our faith,
    Unworthy to adore.
  4. May we stand up for the Cross
    In humility and pride,
    Mediocre when alone,
    Magnificent at His side.
  5. May we gather round the Cross
    In argument and peace,
    Restless for the truth,
    Hopeful of release.
