Sha​dow Of The Cross Ministries

In The Shadow Of The Cross


I was not there when the crowd mocked your name,

I was not there as you hung there in shame,

No, I was not present with all of the rest,

But Lord, I’m just as guilty, never the less.


I was not there to see the thorns on your head,

I was not there to see the blood that you shed.

I was not there as you suffered and cried,

Yet I know am a part of the reason you died.


I was not there that day at Calvary,

I was not there when you died for me.

Though not there when you paid sin's cost,

I’m here today in the shadow of your cross.


I was not there when you were laid in the tomb.

I was not a part of the darkness and gloom.

No, Lord I was not there with all of the rest,

Yet, I was still on your mind, never the less.


I was present when the stone rolled away,

I was not there when you arose the third day.

I wasn’t there when you ascended to your home,

But you left me your spirit, so as I was never alone.


I wasn’t there back then, but with faith I can say,

What you did Jesus back then, still matters today.

No, Lord I wasn’t around when you paid sin’s cost,

But today I kneel humbled in the shadow of your cross.
