He chopped and sawed the logs of wood

It didn't need to be so good

Just crosses would be made of these

For Jesus and a couple of thieves.


It didn't have to be so good

He drove the nails into the wood

Two crosses lay on the ground

And then his heart in sorrow drowned.


He touched the last one's roughened wood

A criminal's tree, his Lord so good

Yet on this cross Jesus would die

He set to work with a deep sigh.


For this, was used, his skill so good ?

The tears rolled down and soaked the wood

He wished his hands could better serve

Did he this awful pain deserve ?


On Golgotha, stood crosses of wood

The centre with the Saviour so good

" It is my cross," in anguish he cried

His Lord gave up the Ghost and died.


The third day dawned with message good

Gone his grief, of the cross of wood

The Lord's ris'n, jubilation !

His death was all for our salvation.


How wondrous seemed his cross of wood

For which, was used, his skill so good

He knelt and praised the Risen Lord

The Perfect Man, The Son of God.

This definitely got me thinking!! Excellent message here. It may be me, but the meter of this made it drag a bit - maybe add a bit of variety so it doesn't get quite so "Singsong", if you know what I mean. Of course, I am not a poet, so it may just be me. Keep writing!!
