by James Robert Kibby
He is like a tree planted On the side of a mountain Overlooking a Golgothan wasteland: Where bushes wither and die For the cracked and hardened ground Yields only salt no matter How deep we've dug the well. Our thorns pierce this tree, And from His side, with blood, Flows the fresh spring of life: Which in us becomes a living well; And we then trees planted, And this wasteland an oasis.
