The Cross Of Calvary

(Written by Rhoda Griffin 2012)


Upon the hill of death it stands

To bridge the gulf twixt God and man

Fixed there by sin and guilt; its span?

The Cross of Calvary.


The turning point of history

The meeting place of Jew and Greek

Salvation offered full and free –

At the Cross of Calvary.


Upon that cross uplifted high

Stretched out from earth beneath to sky

Hangs One who for our sins must die

On the Cross of Calvary.


It stands –  a shelter from the storm

It harbours souls waste and worn

It beacons light to tossed and torn

This Cross of Calvary.
