This is the Wood, the wood of the cross
Where Jesus suffered, to cover the cost
of my sins - Yeah He died for you and me
This is the wood, won't you open your eyes
He hung there in agony because of the lies
That we've told - and out of love He set us free

Pontius Pilate washed his hands
And looked the other way
Like we ignore the poor and homeless
Addicts and drunks today

This is the Wood, the wood of the cross
Where Jesus suffered, to cover the cost
of my sins - Yeah He died for you and me
This is the wood, have you noticed the weight
Dragging our sins up the hill to the fate
That awaits Him That redeeming mystery

Lashes ripped across his back
Such pain we put Him through
Thorns were stuck upon His Head
All for me and you

This is the Wood, the wood of the cross
Where Jesus suffered, to cover the cost
of my sins - Yeah He died for you and me
This is the wood, won't you open your eyes
He hung there in agony because of the lies
That we've told - and out of love He set us free

Trying hard to bear the weight
He struggled up the slope
All is lost, it seems too late
But Jesus gives us hope

This is the Wood, the wood of the cross
Where Jesus suffered, to cover the cost
of my sins - Yeah He died for you and me
This is the wood, and the splinters are real
Try to imagine just how it would feel
On your skin - just how painful it might be

Feel the nails they're driving in
Pointed, cold and sharp
Our selfishness is slicing through
That large and tender heart

This is the Wood, the wood of the cross
Where Jesus suffered, to cover the cost
of my sins - Yeah He died for you and me
This is the wood, won't you open your eyes
He hung there in agony because of the lies
That we've told - and out of love He set us free

Ridicule was dumped on Him
Look deep in your mind
Remember all the times you've been
Callous and unkind

This is the Wood, the wood of the cross
Where Jesus suffered, to cover the cost
of my sins - Yeah He died for you and me
This is the wood, if you clean out your ears
You might hear the hammers, you might feel the tears
That were cried - as He died in agony

One thief to the left of Him
Another to the right
Which of them is more like me?
Help me, God of Light

This is the Wood, the wood of the cross
Where Jesus suffered, to cover the cost
of my sins - Yeah He died for you and me
This is the wood, won't you open your eyes
He hung there in agony because of the lies
That we've told - and out of love He set us free

No! this cup is far too much
Far more than He can stand
But Thy Will be done, He says
The dying Son of Man

This is the Wood, the wood of the cross
Where Jesus suffered, to cover the cost
of my sins - Yeah He died for you and me
This is the wood, do you notice the smell
Of blood that was dripping, and water as well
From His side - as His Spirit was set free

Peter turned his back on Him
Denied Him like a fool
How many times have you done that
Trying to be cool?

This is the Wood, the wood of the cross
Where Jesus suffered, to cover the cost
of my sins - Yeah He died for you and me
This is the wood, won't you open your eyes
He hung there in agony because of the lies
That we've told - and out of love He set us free


Mark 15:21-39

And they compelled a passerby, Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to carry his cross. And they brought him to the place called Golgotha (which means Place of a Skull). And they offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it. And they crucified him and divided his garments among them, casting lots for them, to decide what each should take. And it was the third hour when they crucified him. And the inscription of the charge against him read, "The King of the Jews." And with him they crucified two robbers, one on his right and one on his left. And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads and saying, "Aha! You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself, and come down from the cross!" So also the chief priests with the scribes mocked him to one another, saying, "He saved others; he cannot save himself. Let the Christ, the King of Israel, come down now from the cross that we may see and believe." Those who were crucified with him also reviled him.

And when the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?" which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" And some of the bystanders hearing it said, "Behold, he is calling Elijah." And someone ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a reed and gave it to him to drink, saying, "Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to take him down." And Jesus uttered a loud cry and breathed his last. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And when the centurion, who stood facing him, saw that in this way he breathed his last, he said, "Truly this man was the Son of God!"
