Lois A. Cheney wrote a useful and thought-provoking poem on the cross:

I stand before the cross and wonder.

I stand before the cross and fear.

I kneel before the cross and weep.

I pray before the cross and rejoice.

To know the cross is to know Christ.

To feel the cross is to feel Christ.

To gaze at the cross is to gaze at Christ.

To carry the cross is to be a Christian,

And not until then.

God, forgive us. (Calvin Miller, The Book of Jesus 370. NY: Touchstone, 1996)
