The Throne and the Cross
by Terry R A Eissfeldt  
8/03/2007 / Poetry


The time has come to choose
Who is on the throne of my heart
Who is on the cross?

When You are firmly established on the throne
When You reign without complaint from me
When You are central in my every move
And are my being
I readily confess Your name.

Jesus, You are my Christ
Jesus, You are my source of life
Jesus, You are my King
You reign from the throne in my heart
And I
with all the decaying flesh of the old Adam
Am on the cross
Content to deny myself
Secure in Your finished work
Silent before any accusation
Except when I confess
Your name

But when I sit on the throne of my heart
When I reign in tyrannical fashion
Loudly and with much explanation
As to the justification
of my position
I constantly deny
Your name

Jesus, You're an embarrassment
Jesus, You're a crutch
Jesus, I am independent
I am in control of my life
And I reign on the throne
You are on the cross
Silently waiting
Silently shedding Your life in place of mine
Hoping, believing that I will
See and stop denying
Your name

The time has come to choose
Who is on the throne of my heart
Who is on the cross?
