"THE BRIDGE OF THE CROSS "
Man fain would build a bridge to God
Across the fathomless abyss
That lies between his earth-bound soul
And heaven's perfect bliss.
He takes his knowledge, small and vague,
The great inventions he has wrought,
His mightiest efforts, finest plans,
And his profoundest thought:
He binds them with his strands of straw,
His strings of tow, his ropes of sand,
With all the power and the skill
Of cunning brain and hand.
Through swirling mists he strains his eye,
Above the unseen torrent's roar
He pushes forth the makeshift thing
And hopes to touch the shore.
But when he seeks to cross the chasm
With eager heart and step elate,
He finds his bridge too short to reach,
Too frail to bear his weight.
Oh, baseless dream! Oh, useless toil!
Oh, utter and eternal loss!
For God has laid, to span the void,
His Son upon the cross.
And when man's broken bridges fall,
And sink into the gulf at last,
Still wide and long and safe and strong,
The bridge of God stands fast.

A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
The Lord Jesus is our ONLY way to Heaven. We cannot come to God,
the Father, any other way. Man tries to reach God by his good works
but the Bible says that our own righteousness is as filthy rags-- for just
one sin will keep a man out of Heaven and all have sinned and fall short
of the glory of God. Eternal life and the forgiveness of sins is found in
Jesus Christ alone. He died for our sins upon the cross and He rose again.
He is the ONLY BRIDGE to Heaven and He provided a way for us to live
with Him for all eternity. One must receive the Lord Jesus as their personal
Savior in order to be saved, acknowledging that He paid the price for sin
that we could never pay. Jesus Christ paid it all and He is Savior to
all who will receive Him as their personal Savior and Lord.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
For there is one God, and one mediator between God
and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a
ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
