Calvary's Tree





Calvary's Tree


Are you weak and heavy laden

Are you cumbered down with care

Does the weight upon your shoulders

Seem more like you can bare?


Do you struggle with life's burdens

As you travel on life's road

Do you tend to bend and buckle

Under such a heavy load.


My friend, just think of Jesus

How He suffered and He died

For our sins and our transgressions

He was whipped and crucified.


Imagine how He stood the pain

It cut right to the bone

The anguish that He must have felt

Up there so all alone.


Each strap that lashed across His back

Brought more pain beyond belief

While soldiers laughed and scorned Him

How He prayed for some relief.


A crown of thorns was laid to rest

Upon His weary head

While angry crowds cried crucify

He suffered and He bled.


My friend, just think of Jesus

He was such a wretched sight

They bound Him to rugged cross

He died without a fight.


The nails were driven through His hands

He moaned in agony

Yet, He would do it all again

He'd give his life for me.


So my friend just think of Jesus

When you grumble and complain

You'll see Him there on Calvary

The place where He was slain.


That lowly figure on the cross

Will slowly come to life

You'll see the anguish in His eyes

The torment and the strife.


You'll see the sweat upon His brow

The burdens that He bore

All the things that bring you pain

Won't matter anymore.
