Is There Room at the Cross? By Linda Bonney Olin

I know we’re putting poems and songs out here at the speed of sound!  I think that’s great.  I must tell you that it  was actually a couple MONTHS ago that I received this poem from Linda Bonney Olin.  I went digging around my computer to find it and I am so pleased to bring Linda’s poem to you today!

1. Is there room for two more knees at the foot of the cross?  Can another sinner squeeze his way inside the crowd of penitents who seek pardon for their sins from Jesus Christ, the Savior crucified?

Say you’ll save me a place to meet Jesus face to face and worship at the foot of the cross!

2. Like the parting of the seas for the Hebrews to cross, can you move aside there, please, and let me by,  to join the multitude who kneel down in gratitude to Jesus Christ, the Savior crucified?

Say you’ll save me a place to meet Jesus face to face and worship at the foot of the cross!

3. For each soul who now believes, many more still are lost. Thank the Lord, whose love I seized before I died!  Now I’ll shout with the throng loud hosannas all day long, for Jesus Christ, the Savior crucified!

Say you’ll save me a place to meet Jesus face to face and worship at the foot of the cross!

Linda, I’ll worship with you!  I’ll save you a place.  Let’s let Rev. Clay Evans invite us in song to the cross.  There’s Room at the Cross for You!

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.
