God made a tree

Language: English

God made a tree.
Man felled it and with craft and cunning fashioned it crosswise.
God hung on it.
 
God made a rose.
Man plucked it and with crooked skill twisted its thorns crownwise.
God wore it.
 
God made a stone.
Man hewed it and sealed Him in a tomb with it gravewise.
God rose from it.
