The Good Samaritan

  • Mark Bainbridge
  • The Good Samaritan


Yes its love one another

As I have loved you

That is what Jesus tells us to do

Look after your neighbour

And love your God too,….

For that is what Jesus wants us to do.

The Story

Now Jesus once told of a traveller

Who was robbed and left wounded to die

When along came a high priest

Now wouldn’t you think, he’d help,…

But no! He just passed by.

Then along came a Levite from the temple,

A learned and honourable man.

But he too walked on,

Now wasn’t that wrong?

Who was going to help the poor man?

Then a Samaritan – riding a donkey

Came down the road

A Samaritan – got off and he helped him

And carried him home.

Now which of the three was his neighbour?

Which one would you call a friend?

Which one showed his true compassion?

Listen to what Jesus said,…           CH.

Some Participation Suggestions


  • A story song, with the chorus coming in like a recurring theme or chant.
  • I usually just sing the story but playing the song is just as effective
  • This tends to allows children to enact the story and audience the chance to witness the enactment


  • Dramatisation or mime of the story.
  • 2 groups required – one choir and the other the enactment group.
