Simon of Cyrene is made to bear the cross (Station 5)
Music: Karl Digerness, 2012
Words: Thomas Shepherd, 1693


Must Jesus bear the cross alone,
And all the world go free?
No, there’s a cross for ev’ryone,
And there’s a cross for me.

The consecrated cross I’ll bear
Till death shall set me free;
And then go home my crown to wear,
For there’s a crown for me.
–Words: Thomas Shepherd, 1693
