A Tree from Lebanon

became a cross
as an accompaniment
for our Lord Jesus --

its hardness built for strength,
to hold a Saviour
of the world.

He did not die in vain.
His glory transcended the smell
of death such punishment
inflicted upon His body.

He died for our sins.
Then arose.

(c) 2016 Richard L. Provencher
