Which tree?

Which tree will they choose?

Which tree will you choose?

If you had to choose

one tree

which tree would it be?


One tree from a forest

one tree, straight and true

but it has to be

strong enough

to hold a man.


One tree

to saw it down

and hack it into planks

and plant it back again

in a misshapen version of a tree.


One tree

on which to hang

a man

with nails or cords

and a sign

which says he is a king.


You have to choose

one tree

one tree

to buy the price of our sins.


Which tree will it be?
