The Cradle, the Cross, and the Cave

“For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man” 1 Corinthians 15:21

The cradle, the cross, and the cave.

Each tell the story, each show the way.

Each bring salvation to a world gone astray.

For the cradle, the cross, and the cave telescope.

In these three you’ll find that in Christ there is hope.

The cradle revealed, in a barn He was born.

Reaching out to the world, all sinners to warn.

That the link to restore a lost world was now here.

In strips of cloth bound, God’s message was clear.

The cross resulted, at the place called The Skull.

The sinless One crucified, death to annul.

The penalty paid, for you and for me.

Stripped of His clothes, to set captives free.

The cave replied, hewn from the rock.

The Son of God laid, the door to unlock.

Wrapped in clean linen, the burial was done.

But the grave couldn’t hold Him, resurrection had come!

The cradle, the cross, the cave, all three.

Good news now declared, but you must agree.

Hope is alive, His power conquers all.

And death is defeated when before Him we fall.
