Emmaus-Bound on Easter Day
O WALY WALY (126.96.36.199) ("Though I May Speak")
Emmaus-bound on Easter Day,
Two travelers walked along the way.
They'd once had hope, but hope had died
When you, O Lord, were crucified.
When you appeared beside the two,
They could not see that it was you;
But as they talked and shared their pain,
You gave them hope and joy again.
For as you spoke to them God's word,
Explaining all they'd seen and heard,
They understood what God had done
And that a new day had begun.
They shared their home; you broke the bread.
They saw you, risen from the dead!
That moment's grace helped them to see
The gift of God's eternity.
In scripture and at table, too,
O Risen Lord, may we know you.
And may your presence give us grace
To share God's love in every place.
