Final Prayer: Christ is Risen!

April 21, 2011

We Walk with the Lord
on the Way of the Cross

So slow of heart, says Jesus to the disciples
On the road to Emmaus, so slow of heart!
So slow to believe all the prophets,
That t was necessary from the Christ
To suffer all these things
And so enter into his glory.

Suffering you take away our sins,
Dying you do away with our death,
Rising you renew our life.
By your Cross and Resurrection
You have redeemed the world.
Lord Jesus, come in glory!
