The Cross Of Westminster

Young and old

Fit and frail

Wheelchair walking cane

Babes in arms

Expectant mums

Walking all the same


These the folk

For whom Christ died

Saints and sinners all

Brought together

Round a cross

Planted in the hall


Christ on Calvary the same

People stood and stared

Jesus gave his mother then

To John and with us shared

Arms outstretched

Embraced the world

Come and follow me

Make a place for all to dwell

Make one family

+ These first two days in the Hall of Westminster coincide with the feasts of the Holy Cross and the Mother of Sorrows – fitting feasts for these days of mourning.
