The Cross in my Pocket

I carry a cross in my pocket,

A simple reminder to me

Of the fact that I’m a Christian

No matter where I may be.

This little cross is not magic,

Nor is it a good luck charm;

It isn’t meant to protect me.

From physical harm.

It’s not for identification.

For all the world to see;

It’s simply an understanding

Between my Savior and me.

When I put my hand in my pocket

To bring out a coin or key,

The cross is there to remind me

Of the price paid for me.

It reminds me, to be thankful

For my blessings day by day,

And to strive to serve Him better

In all that I do and say.

It’s also daily reminder

Of the peace and comfort I share

with all who know my Master

And give themselves to His care.

So I carry a cross in my pocket

Reminding no one but me

The Jesus Christ is Lord of my Life.

If only I will let Him Be.
