Our Suffering Saviour - Poem by Juanita Derringer

God made the tree which was destined to be
The cross of the Saviour of humanity.
God laid out the plan whereby man would be free
But Jesus denounced, went to old Calvary.

God bads his dear Son to traverse the way
Though Jesus, in torment, cringed from it that day.
He suffered the pain, the shame and the sin
For mankind's return unto God, once again.
