The Way of the Cross

Source unknown

Some of us stay at the cross, Some of us wait at the tomb,Quickened and raised with ChristYet lingering still in the gloom.

Some of us &ls;bide at the Passover feastWith Pentecost all unknown,The triumphs of grace in the heavenly placeThat our Lord has made His own.

If the Christ who died had stopped at the cross,His work had been incomplete.If the Christ who was buried had stayed in the tomb,He had only known defeat,

But the way of the cross never stops at the crossAnd the way of the tomb leads onTo victorious grace in the heavenly placeWhere the risen Lord has gone.
