HE GREW THE TREE

HE MOLDED AND BUILT A SMALL LONELY HILL

THAT HE KNEW WOULD BE CALLED CALVARY.

THEN HE MADE THE SEED THAT WOULD GROW TO BE

THORNS THAT WOULD MAKE HIS SON BLEED.

THEN HE MADE A GREEN STEM

GAVE IT LEAVES AND THEN GAVE IT SUNSHINE AND RAIN AND

SHELTERED IT WITH MOSS.

HE GREW THE TREE HE KNEW WOULD BE

USED TO MAKE THE OLD RUGGED CROSS.

WITH TEARS IN HIS EYES GOD LOOKED DOWN THROUGH TIME

SAW HIM SPAT UPON REJECTED AND MOCKED.

STILL HE KNEW THE TREE HE KNEW WOULD BE

USED TO MAKE THE OLD RUGGED CROSS.

NOTHING TOOK HIS LIFE WITH LOVE HE GAVE IT.

HE WAS CRUCIFIED ON A TREE THAT HE CREATED.

WITH GREAT LOVE FOR MAN

GOD GAVE WITH HIS PLAN.

HE GREW THE TREE SO THAT WE MIGHT GO FREE.

STILL HE GREW THE TREE HE KNEW WOULD BE

USED TO MAKE THE OLD RUGGED CROSS.
Lyrics to song  He Grew the Tree by Calvin Clark
