The Cross In My Pocket

cross

 

I carry a cross in my pocket.

A simple reminder of the

fact that I am a Christian.

No matter where I may be,

it’s not for identification

for all the world to see.

It’s simply an understanding

between my savior Jesus

and me.

  1. I am looking for the rest of this poem.. I had a little card when I was a little girl and I would love to find it again. Some of the rest goes like this “this little cross is not magic nor a good luck charm, it isn’t meant to protect me from every physical harm” any help would be great

    • Hello Cheryl,
      This is what I found:

      A Cross in My Pocket
      by Mrs. Verna Mae Thomas

      I carry a cross in my pocket
      A simple reminder to me
      Of the fact that I am 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 every 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 a key
      The cross is there to remind me
      Of the price He paid for me.

      It reminds me, too, 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 a 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
      That Jesus Christ is the Lord of my life
      If only I’ll let Him be.
