Once, there were three crosses,
standing upon a hill.
The earth had grown dark;
he winds began to
In the center of the crosses,
was Jesus Christ, our Lord.
His love had reached many,
and ears had heard His
But, even though they listened,
the Sacrifice still was yet to come.
He came upon the earth, to see
His Father's will
He turned His back upon temptation,
and was able to deny
So, we, too, may strive to do the same,
to remain strong, in
We keep our eyes upon the Cross,
which stood there, in
We keep our minds upon His Word,
and we are saved, from thorn and thistle.
