Three Crosses

(603 for Las Cruces)
December 24, 2005
Rick Eakens
Their life and their religion
They were forced to compromise
But even pre-ordained commission
would never lead to their demise
Still our movies and our textbooks
would like to lead us to believe
That they were only murderers, and terrorists and thieves

Three Crosses stand in the Desert Sand
Three fathers gone, they were not alone
Three sisters crying for the ones who died
Now Three spirits time has come, for they know not what they've done.

They never knew an inquisition
no holocaust could they forsee
They were never really helpless
at the hands of destiny
Their history wasn't written
By some college teachers pen
But in the blood of all the warriors
Who bravely met their end.

Three crosses stand, in the desert sand
Three fathers gone, they were not alone
Three sisters crying for the ones who died
now Three spirits time has come, for they know not what they've done.

Three ships approaching from the other side
If the judgement day must come, Lord have mercy on your soul...
Keep the crossed
Lord have mercy on your soul..

Keep the crosses...
