Five Minute Friday – The Cherished Cross

Oh how I cherish the cross
When I gaze upon it

I see my Savior who died
To set me free

I see the holiness of God
And the ugliness of my sin

The chains of sin that once held me
Have been broken; I’ve been set free

The blood of Christ was shed
To cleanse me whiter than snow

The Father’s love so deep
He gave His only begotten Son

The place where my Kinsman Redeemer
Paid the price and made me His own

Though I’m a day late, I did not want to miss an opportunity to participate in Lisa-JoBaker’s Five Minute Friday writing challenge.  Head over to her website “Lisa Jo Baker Tales from a Gypsy Mama”.  Be sure to read some of the entries from other writers.  I can promise you that you will be blessed.
