Chris Rice – My Tree lyrics

On a hill far away stands a tall mighty tree
Where a boy and girl used to take turns pushing the tire swing
I remember the pocketknife in hand
And her name in my heart
And thinkin' there ain't no way for a boy to contain
The love that he feels inside
So I carved her name into my tree
Then I carved a heart around her name
Then I carved an arrow through the heart
Just to say "I love you"
Now on a hill far away stood an old rugged cross
The emblem of suffering and shame
I remember the nails through my hands
And your name in my heart
And how in their wordless way the nails explain
The love that I feel inside
As they carved your name into my tree
Where I wrapped my heart around your name
Then I took your arrow through my heart
Just to say, "I love you"
Just to say, "I love you"
Now I can never forget how much you mean to me
'Cause I will always remember whenever I see
Where I carved your name into my tree
Where I wrapped my heart around your name
Then I took your arrow through my heart
Just to say, "I love you"
Just to say, "I love you"

    Gods love is depicted as a love between a man and a woman. As kids falling in love spending time together. It relates well to the passage found in ephesians which says that husbands should love their wives as christ loved the church and gave his life up for her. It is found in john 3: 16 and throughout the gospel. As christ and his church fell in love. To be wed in another time and place. As seen in revelation. A great mystery. It is seen each time a boy falls in love with a girl in that ordinary but extrodinary way. It is what songs are made of. Stories. Dreams. Families. Love. God's love. In a simple love story.
