Calvary’s Tree

Are you weak and heavy laden Are you cumbered down with care Does the weight upon your shoulders Seem like more than you can bear? 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 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 a 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 the man 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.
