I chose the cross instead of the Scepter.

For my crown I chose thorns,

instead of gold and gems.

My garments were made of cotton,

instead of satin.

Around my waist I tied a cord,

refusing the silken sash.

The vehicle that allowed me to go among my people

was the sandals on my feet.

Not a warrior's chariot!

All those who followed me kept

my name alive for all time:

because I was one of them.

I understood their hopelessness,

their helplessness, and their heartbreak.

My love and consolation

will be with them for all eternity.


Hereafter let us honor

the word of God,

The Life of Christ

In all our word's, deed's,

and in our actions.

Amen  Amen
