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


Matthew 27, 39-56

And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads and saying, "You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross." So also the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked him, saying, "He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the King of Israel; let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. He trusts in God; let God deliver him now, if he desires him. For he said, I am the Son of God." And the robbers who were crucified with him also reviled him in the same way.

Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. nd about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?" that is, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" And some of the bystanders, hearing it, said, "This man is calling Elijah." And one of them at once ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine, and put it on a reed and gave it to him to drink. But the others said, "Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him." And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit.

And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split. The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised, and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many. When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe and said, "Truly this was the Son of God!"

There were also many women there, looking on from a distance, who had followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to him, among whom were Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Joseph and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.
