Sylvia Miles/March 11, 2013

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me” (Gal 2:20 KJV).

Our ultimate journey to the Cross

Is the way to Jesus Christ

The One who suffered for our sins

However, He paid the price


This special course that we will take

Gives power to strengthen our day

Providing the Holy Word of God

To read along the way


Experiencing a number of distractions

On our tour each day

On the journey to the Cross

Where fiery darts display


As we war off the devils plots

To divert our voyage flights

We have to fast and pray every day

As he tries to blind our sights


During this journey to the Cross

There are things we have to endure

Like stumbling blocks and ridicule

Doubting minds are all unsure


We will be mocked by several others

And spat at because we are engrossed

As they perceive the Christ that lives in us

Along this journey to the Cross


If we take this worthy road

With our savior Jesus Christ

He will help us all along the way

Down the path of eternal life


While on this journey to the Cross

Live free from immoral sin

So God will open His heavenly gates

So we all may enter in
