These eyes … have looked into the eyes of God.

This mouth … has spoken real truth.

This heart … has felt the pain of loss.

This skin … has felt the burn of tar.

These hands … have wiped tears from a child’s face.

This soul … has borne the pains of martyrdom.

This man … has testified for all the world.

For a timid child to the highest of kings,

He testified.
