 Cover "Come See A Tree With Me"

Come see a tree with me
     which looks dead and weathered,
          but don't be fooled dear soul
               for this is the tree of Life.

If you came across this tree
     high on a mountain top,
          or low in the desert dying
               your tears might turn to blood.

For on a tree long ago
     it was the blood of God's Son
          that turned the cross into
               the tree of Life for us.

So when you see a tree
     dear fellow sojourner
          remember you are looking at
               the symbol of our salvation.
