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...'..?
