The Ground Grows Thorns

Dust and Dirt
Mud and Clay
Combined to form
A being like no other

Breath of God
Air of life
And there arose
A man with no mother

Image of God
Freedom of will
To choose right from wrong
To choose the dark or the light

Fruit forbidden
Talking snake
The crown of creation falls
And thus begins an everlasting fight

And the ground grew thorns
Thorns that cut
Thorns that choke
Thorns that cause pain and death
Yes, the ground grew thorns

Holy Spirit
Virgin maid
Combined to form
A being like no other

Heaven waits
with bated breath
As God the Son
Is born of a mother

Second Adam
Lamb of God
Love’s master plan
Begins to unveil

Darkened Skies
Brutal cross
The gates of death
Will now be assailed

And the ground grows thorns
Thorns that cut
Thorns that choke
Thorns that make a King’s crown
Yes, the ground grows thorns
