~ An Hour
I have never hung upon a cross,
Upon my head a crown of thorns,
Given vinegar to quench my thirst,
While people in attendance scorned.
I have not given up my life,
To save a sinnerís soul,
Iíve not been buried in a cave,
Guarded by soldiers bold.
I have not risen from the dead,
A miracle talked about today,
I have not emerged from a tomb,
Nor ascended unto heavenís way.
But, I love the one that did these things,
Jesus gave His precious life for me,
He suffered greatly upon the cross,
When He paid my cost at Calvary.
I will travel to heavenís bright portals,
Guided by the light He shines for me to see,
I will forever walk in His footprints,
For my divine Savior is waiting for me.
