When I rested below the tree,
Weighed down by the troubles of the world,
Little did I know,
That would be the Calvary’s tree which would save me.
And Lo! On the cross lay my Saviour who loves me.
A Love so deep, a love so pure,
Like never have any mankind felt before.
What did you see in me, I ask again,
To the one who tells me
His love for me is everlasting.
The heaven came down for me, to wipe away my tears,
But the world crucified him, without any kindness to spare.
What would I give back for this passion you showed me,
What would I do in return for the love you bestow on me,
The passion on the cross,
I will love thee back with all my heart, and my soul,
Oh! My Lord.
