[size=51]

Told me to care for your Mother
A sad will and testament this
And she holding up like a champion
No soft words, no counsel, no kiss.
And I standing stunned like a youngster
And you hanging naked and shamed
And priests letting out foulest venom
They blaspheme, they mock and defame.
How could Gospel challenge evoke this?
You spoke simple comfort and rest
You healed all the sick and the lonely
Your stories of Heaven the best.
But something now strangely speaks victory
And mercy for those with no light
Yes Lord I will cherish your Mother
God grant that I comfort her right.
And memories we’ll share of the good times
When you were the balm of the crowd
When we held you forth as Messiah
And missions of help made us proud.


(At this point John still did not know that the greatest legacy they would share would be resurrection. He is risen...He is risen indeed. No cause for grieving then.)
