BRIER – (Good Friday)

by Jeff Smallman

featuring the Thames Scholars

LYRICS

Because, dear Christ, your tender, wounded arm
   Bends back the brier that edges life’s long way,
That no hurt comes to heart, to soul no harm,
   I do not feel the thorns so much to-day.

Because I never knew your care to tire,
   Your hand to weary guiding me aright,
Because you walk before and crush the brier,
   It does not pierce my feet so much to-night.

Because so often you have harkened to
   My selfish prayers, I ask but one thing now,
That these harsh hands of mine add not unto
   The crown of thorns upon your bleeding brow.

Emily Pauline Johnson (10 March 1861 – 7 March 1913),
