1phrase: 

Cross my heart and hope to die is mainly used to emphasize what one says or promise is the truth and the sincerity of what one is saying.

It is believed that the origin of this phrase is based on the religious sign of the cross hence why sometimes when people say the phrase they would accompany it with the hand gestures of crossing one’s hands over one’s breast and then pointing the right hand skyward (a variant is cross my heart and point to God).

To stand by your words take’s great courage and determination. Lots of people can say the words but at the end of the day do they mean it? Can they stand by their words and action it accordingly?

Those that you hold dear to your heart – if you ever say to them:

“cross my heart and hope to die”

remember to mean it and be truthful.
