Thee crosses on a lonely hill,
a thief on either side,
And, in between, the Son of God
how wide the gulf-how wide!!
Yet one thief spanned it with the words,
"Oh, Lord, remember me!!"
the other scoffed and turned aside
to lost eternity.
Forsaken is the hilltop now,
and all the crosses gone,
but in the believing hearts of men
the center cross lives on.
And still, as when these sentinels
first met earth's wondering view,
the presence of the Lord divides....
upon which side are you???
As Christians, we talk a lot about THE cross, but we sometime ignore or forget about the other two. They were there for a purpose as this poem exposes. Think about it and then tell your lost friends and loved ones about Jesus!!
