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
