There is a tree that brings you life,
That takes your worries, takes your strife.
A tree that’s known by many names,
Forgives your sin and takes your blames.
The tree that’s in Golgotha set,
That takes away all we regret.
And that’s the only tree of life,
The one that sorts your afterlife.
I speak of course of Calvary’s tree
Where someone died for you, for me.
He’d done no wrong to call his own.
And now he sits on heavenly throne.
And on this tree, shaped to a cross,
Paid for my shame, my sin and dross.
There Jesus died, my pain endured,
There my sickness and pain were cured.
Give thanks to him, my sin he took.
If you don’t believe me, read the book.
