Bearing Burdens


Could I bear a burden
To set somebody free?
Would I dare to tread,
The path to Calvary?

Do I meekly bow my head,
When wrongly accused?
Do I turn the other cheek,
When brutally abused?

Would I have the courage,
To stand up when I fall,
To humbly sip the offered,
Vinegar and gall?

When I am laid exposed,
Vunerable and bare,
Would I cloak myself
With a silent, fervent prayer?

And when at last I'm broken,
Would forgiveness shine through?
Could I softly whisper,
'They know not what they do...'..?

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
