helping to ignite your imagination, creativity and passion for following God…

Your call is clear, cold centuries across;
You bid me follow You, and take my cross,
and daily lose myself, myself deny,
and stern against myself shout `Crucify’

My stubborn nature rises to rebel
against You call. proud choruses of hell
unite to magnify my restless hate
of servitude, lest I capitulate

The world, to see my cross, would pause and jeer
I have no choice, but to persevere
to save myself – and follow You from far
more slow than Magi – for I have no star

And yet You call me still. Your cross
eclipses mine, transforms the bitter loss
I thought that I would suffer if I came
to You – into immeasurable gain

I kneel before You, Jesus, crucified
my cross is shouldered and my self denied
I’ll follow daily, closely, not refurse
for love of You and man myself to lose
