THE WRITINGS OF RUTH MARTIN
The Preacher's Wife

THREE CROSSES

cross

Three crosses on a hill
Beneath a glow'rng sky;
Gaunt Golgotha bared it's head.
Three men went forth to die.

Three men condemned did stand.
For each a tree was made;
A heavy, ugly cross-piece
Upon which each was laid.

Three men upon a tree;
Rough nails their flesh did mar.
Three men upon a cross were raised
To die at Judgment's Bar

Three trees against the sky.
Faint voices could be heard
"Remember me, Lord," one did sigh.
One snarled a cursing word.

Three debts to sin were paid.
Two men, guilty, paid the price,
But One more pure than driven snow-
God's Holy Sacrifice.

Three men went forth to die-
Three crosses in the sod-
On either side a guilty thief-
Between, the Son of God.
