Cross Purpose

Matthew 20:17-28


A mother wants the best for her sons

Power and position and prestige

Her timing couldn’t worse

Jesus talks about the curse

Of suffering that will come

And not ease


What is this life he leads

The journey taken

Engaging all the world by word and deed

The way of life is service

This what you must learn

Not pious cod Uriah Heap

Let your daily step be firm


Practise love in everything you do

You won’t always be liked

And that is true

You’ll meet a world caught up in every sin

You won’t escape the trouble

It will bring

But carry on your journey to the cross

A life of love knows pain

But never loss

His dying breath spoke of paradise

I trust that word

And follow that advice
