Legend of The Dogwood Tree

Dogwood

When Christ was on earth, the dogwood grew
To a towering size with lovely hue.
Its branches were strong and interwoven
And for Christ's cross its timbers were chosen.
Being distressed at the use of this wood,
Christ made a promise which still holds good:

"Not ever again shall the dogwood grow
To be large enough for such a tree, and so
Slender and twisted it shall always be
With cross-shaped blossoms for all to see.
The petals shall have bloodstains marked in brown
And in the blossom's center a thorny crown.
All who see it will think of Me,
Nailed to a cross from the dogwood tree.
Protected and cherished this tree shall be
A reflection to all of my agony."

LYRICS TO:
RISE AGAIN
                             by Dallas Holmes


Go ahead, drive the nails in my hands
Laugh at me where you stand.
Go ahead and say it isn't me,
The day will come when you will see.


'Cause I'll rise again.
There's* no power on earth can tie me down.
Yes, I'll rise again.
Death can't keep me in the ground.


Go ahead and mock my name,
My love for you is still the same.
Go ahead and bury me,
But very soon I will be free.


'Cause I'll rise again.
There's* no power on earth can tie me down.
Yes, I'll rise again.
Death can't keep me in the ground.


Go ahead and say I'm dead and gone,
You will see that you were wrong.
Go ahead, try to hide the Son,
But all will see that I'm the one.


Because I'll come** again.
There's* no power on earth can keep me back.
Yes, I'll come again.
Come to take my people back.


And I'll come again.
There's* no power on earth can tie me down.
Yes, I'll come again.
Death can't keep me in the ground.




* original reads "ain't no power..."
**original reads "rise" instead of "come" from here to end.

Some time ago I lost my old GuestBook: I am absolutely clueless as to whut happened to it, but suddenly I could not make connection thru the established link. Since I could not find where they went I completely revamped a NEW GuestBook which I myself customized. I have also included a short (well, all right, maybe not so short) survey that I hope each of you will complete as you sign the GuestBook. If you have signed my GuestBook in the past, I would appreciate it if you would sign again since all those entries went whatever way the old GuestBook did, hmmmmmm....now that I thimk on the matter, the old GuestBook was probably stolen by my nemesis The Master and is now lost in the fartherest reaches of the universe!!!
