On The Cross

born for a purpose,
he held to his course.
till his last drops,
he showed his love,
and gave what i have
on the cross he saved me.
from the time he was proven,
to the judges him not shaken,
the truth was his shield,
and love his sword.
for him i am not a coward!
on the cross he saved me.

Thanks Dr. for your comment. Everyone surely has a unique mission to accomplish. So looking at Jesus on the cross, we also can make it.
the truth was his shield, and love his sword. born for a purpose, the very first verse attracted me..... born for a purpose........ yes jesus fulfilled his purpose of life by dying on the cross.. if we also live for a purpose it would be fine...... it should be a noble purpose for which we live and die....... vry fine poem. God bless u. tony
