Stations of the Cross 2021 by Fr Brian Kealey – 3

 

The Third Station

Jesus falls for the first time

 

We adore thee Oh Christ and we praise thee

Because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world

 

First Voice

There is screaming and panic,

and pushing and power

As they herd the victims from train to chamber

In chains into stinking ships

Using fear to reduce with labour before death

And some fall

and are beaten

Second Voice

That the Son of God should fall

Through whom the stars and skies were formed

should accept human frailty

So who am I

In pride to condemn my weakness

Get up

Get up

Get up

 

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
