Traveler

I am going down from Jerusalem to Jericho.
Oh, no! Robbers! They are attacking me!

Prompter & Echoes

Help!

Traveler

They beat me with clubs, and I fall!
They take my clothes and all I have!
They leave me half-dead and bleeding.

Prompter & Echoes

Bleeding!

Traveler

Oh! Here comes a priest, a man of God.
Surely, he will help me.

Prompter & Echoes

Help! Have mercy!

Traveler

The priest stops and looks at me.
Then he passes by on the other side.

Prompter & Echoes

There is no hope!

Traveler

Here comes a Levite, a servant of God. Good! He will help me.
Oh, no! He also passes me by. Oh! I am growing weaker.

Prompter & Echoes

Weaker and weaker!

Traveler

I see a Samaritan coming with a donkey.
He is an enemy of us Jews. He won’t help me.

Prompter & Echoes

  (Groan)

Traveler

But the Samaritan stops, looks at my injuries,
and begins to help me!

Prompter & Echoes

Compassion!

Traveler

He bandages my wounds, pours oil and wine on them,
and puts me on his donkey.
We go to an inn and the Samaritan continues to take care of me.
He even leaves money with the innkeeper
to take care of me after he leaves.

Prompter & Echoes

The love that Jesus demands!
