He never gave a sign to me,
And yet I knew and came.
At first I said, ‘I will not bear
His cross upon my back;
He only seeks to place it there
Because my skin is black.’
But He was dying for a dream,
And He was very meek,
And in His eyes there shone a gleam
Men journey far to seek.
It was Himself my pity bought;
I did for Christ alone
What all of Rome could not have wrought
With bruise of lash or stone.
