The Carpenter’s Task
The sound of mallets and chisels it seems,What once were two logs now appear as two beams.
One cut to length, twice high as a man.
One a bit shorter passed two out stretched hands.
Are these for a boat? Or post for a door?
But deep in my heart, I knew this was much more.
As the two came together, tears filled my eyes.
For there stood a cross and Christ Crucified.
The Carpenter’s task was quite simple for man.
But the sin of the World,
placed the nails in His hands.
