Jesus, You told us this would happen;
that we would know that death
was not an ending,
but rather a beginning.
You promised that no tomb would hold You
and that we would see You again
alive and glorified
But, we didn’t believe it – we still don’t
We still face the little deaths which fill our lives
with fear and dread and despair.
We still look away from Your resurrected glory
believing ourselves to be beyond the reach of Your grace & life
But, now in this place, we gather to be reminded
Resurrection has happened – it happens still
grace and life can find us anywhere, and bring us home
And so we worship, with joy and relief
and with awe and trembling
Stand among us again now, Jesus
and let Your life flood our weary and doubting souls.
For we pray this in Your Name.
