Work written by Ratcliffe. Hallock arranged organ accompaniment for 3 trumpets, horn, and 2 trombones.
As Jesus went to Calvary,
The Cross, it weighed him down.
The thorn bush bent its branches black
Before his thorny crown.
As Jesus went to die.
The thorn bush bowed in shame to see
The crown of plainted thorn
That men had used to wound their Lord
With ridicule and scorn.
But on the third day dawning fair
Our Lord rose from the tomb;
And in the garden where he’d lain
The thorn bush burst in bloom.
As Jesus rose again.
