Holy Week: ‘The Ballad of Mary’s Son’

Remembering Trayvon Martin (Haraz N. Ghanbari, AP)
The Ballad of Mary’s Son

It was in the Spring
The Passover had come.
There was feasting in the streets and joy.
But an awful thing
Happened in the Spring –
Men who knew not what they did
Killed Mary’s Boy.
He was Mary’s Son,
And the Son of God was He –
Sent to bring the whole world joy.
There were some who could not hear,
And some were filled with fear –
So they built a cross
For Mary’s Boy.
