Born For This [Song]

The title track of our Born for This presentation from the fourth station, this song is sung by Mary the Mother of Jesus as she meets him carrying his cross.


Born for this, you were born for this.
Born to walk this road
and bear that rugged cross.
But it’s breaking my heart
to see you like this.
My son… my precious child.

The agony, oh the agony.
I see you suffering
and there’s nothing I can do.
But I’ll walk by your side
’til we come to the end
My son… my precious child.

I see the anguish in your eyes
I’ve prayed this cup would pass you by
But I know it just has to be so
Tho’ I don’t understand the reasons
So much pain, so much confusion…

But you were born for this.
You were born for this.
My son… my precious child.
