Simon of Cyrene

From the countryside
Appeared at the scene
Pressed into service
Simon of Cyrene

Not much written of him
A simple passer by
But was of the chosen
His help he did apply

Helping of our Jesus
Cross of bearing great
A meeting of the eyes
A prayer to contemplate

Touched His precious blood
Holy breath to share
How heavy was that cross?
Of all our sins to bare

When we are called to service
A calling here to do
To walk by Jesus’ side
May I be faithful too

One thought on “Simon of Cyrene”

  1. This was so good. And made me think. I have recently stepped down from serving because of the amount of compassion burnout that I was feeling. How do encourage those that are wanting to help carry that cross along with Jesus but experiencing compassion burnout?
