Cross my heart
and hope to die
stick a needle in my eye
wait a moment,
I spoke a lie
I never really
wanted to die.
but if I may
and if I might
my heart is open
for tonight
though my lips are sealed
and a promise is true
I won’t break my word
my word to you.
Cross my heart
hope to die
stick a needle in my eye.
a secret’s a secret
my word is forever
I will tell no one
about your cruel endeavor.
you claim no pain
but I see right through
your words in
everything you do.
teary eyes
broken heart
life has torn
you apart Cross my heart
hope to die
stick a needle in my eye
I loved you then
I love you now
I’ll still love you
though i’ll break my vow.
I can’t hold this secret
any longer
it’s hurting you
not making you stronger.
you’re my friend
so i’ll risk your respect
by hurting you
I can protect
I’ll save yourself
since you will not
you might hate me
but I’ll give it a shot.
I’m willing to risk
our bond that we own
so long as you’re safe
you won’t be alone.Cross my heart
hope to die
stick a needle in my eye
break my promise
tell a lie
save my friend
though, maybe it’s ‘bye.’

Philippians 2: 5-11 (NKJV)

“The Cross is God supernaturally intervening in the events of His Creation. Jesus Christ is God but He laid aside the glory that He had in Heaven with His Father and became a man. He could have entered this world as a supreme king but instead, took the form of a servant and lived a sinless life. He obeyed God, the Father, and willingly allowed Himself to be tortured and executed on the Cross. Three days later, God resurrected Him from the dead proving that He alone has the power to conquer death and free us from the bondage of our sins. 

“Cross my heart.

“It is a solemn promise. It cost Jesus Christ His life to bring salvation and eternal life to all who confess and repent of their sins and place their trust in Him.

“Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.”
