A man stood by the lintel on that historic day

I’m sure that he was sorry he chose to pass that way

And there among the soldiers with rabble gathered round

A man collapsed on the path and hit the stony ground.

On his head he suffered a mock crown made of thorn

His body bore the scourges, his garment wet and torn

The stranger he came forward to give this man relief

He helped him drag his burden just like a common thief.

The stranger’s name was Simon from Cyrene he had come

Who guessed we’d know his name for two thousand years and some,

His courage and his kindness played well on that last day

While our Lord Jesus died in that place so faraway !

How sad it is for us to be

Hiding from life’s inequity

The question that’s been asked of me

Shall we survive the enemy ?

We surely know there will be cost

Our wisdom gone our valour lost

This tragedy which we maintain

Doth drown us all in grave disdain !

Evoking words we’ve heard before

Our future’s knocking on the door

Truth don’t you think that it’s too late

Barbarians are at the gate ?
