He Calls To Me

Across the years, He calls to me
And in my mind's eye I can see
High Calvary and there the cross.
A symbol of the world's great loss.
But also too, a hopeful sign.
Salvation now, is yours and mine
Because of sacrifice He made
And for our sins, in death, He paid.

I seem to see the hostile throng
And those who knew this act was wrong.
The grief and anguish of the few
Who followed Him.His love they knew
Would be with them and ease the pain
Until they joined Him once again,
To dwell in mansions He's prepared,,
With all of Heaven's blessings shared!

'... But also too, a hopeful sign.

Betty if only more people could see His heart and realize what a hopeful sign He gave to us.

This is such an impressive and important poem. Bless you for the inspiration to write it.

Hugs, Marti


Every now and then take a good look at something not made
with hands -- a mountain, a star, the power of the ocean.
There will come to you wisdom,

This is a great write. Knowing that he cared for us so much to hang there on that cross, will always mean so much to me.
