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


John 19:17-36

So they took Jesus and he went out, bearing his own cross, to the place called The Place of a Skull, which in Aramaic is called Golgotha. There they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, and Jesus between them. Pilate also wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It read, "Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews." Many of the Jews read this inscription, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and it was written in Aramaic, in Latin, and in Greek. So the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, "Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews,’ but rather, ‘This man said, I am King of the Jews.’" Pilate answered, "What I have written I have written."

When the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they took his garments and divided them into four parts, one part for each soldier; also his tunic. But the tunic was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom, so they said to one another, "Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it to see whose it shall be." This was to fulfill the Scripture which says, "They divided my garments among them,vand for my clothing they cast lots."

So the soldiers did these things, but standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, "Woman, behold, your son!" Then he said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother!" And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.

After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said ( to fulfill the Scripture), "I thirst." A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, "It is finished," and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

Since it was the day of Preparation, and so that the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken and that they might be taken away. So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first, and of the other who had been crucified with him. But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out blood and water. He who saw it has borne witness - his testimony is true, and he knows that he is telling the truth - that you also may believe. For these things took place that the Scripture might be fulfilled: "Not one of his bones will be broken."
