Kneeling Under the Shadow of the Cross by Raymond A. Foss

Bowing our heads, giving over our wills
leaving all, our comfort
kneeling as he did, in the Garden
Gethsemane, knowing what awaited
asking for the cup to be removed;
but more, turning his life over
giving the choice, the path over to God

Kneeling under the shadow of the cross
the darkness calling him;
but so was the light
the redemption for us all
to each of us, in our turn
calling us, choosing to follow
to follow the way of the cross
to kneel under its shadow
and call on God
for the direction of our lives
