Stations of the Cross 2021 by Fr Brian Kealey – 10

 The Tenth Station

Jesus is stripped of his garments

 

We adore thee Oh Christ and we praise thee

Because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world

 

First Voice

Part of the ritual of humiliation

Is this stripping naked

Back to Adam’s sin

But here the sinless one

Exposes our regret

Confronts the shame

We spend a lifetime covering

 

Second Voice

Take from me each layer

Remove the pretence

The cloak of wealth

The veneer of respectability

The trappings of security

In truth I have nothing but my love

That Lord is all that I am

have mercy on me a sinner

 

I love you Jesus

My love above all things

I regret with my whole heart of having offended thee

Never permit me to separate myself from thee again

Grant that I may love thee always and then do with me what thou will
