"He Grew The Tree" lyrics

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

Nothing took His life
With love He gave it
He was crucified
On a tree that He created
With great love for man
God stayed with His plan
He grew the tree
So that we might go free

With tears in His eyes
God looked down through time
Saw Him spat upon
Rejected and mocked
Oh, still He grew the tree
That 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 stayed with His plan
He grew the tree
So that we might go free

He grew the tree
That He knew would be
Used to make the old rugged cross
