On the Road to Emmaus
(Luke 24:13-35)

On the road to Emmaus
A risen Jesus makes a church
From dust, despair and doubt.

On the road to Emmaus
A risen Jesus makes a church.
I live.

Hear me in the prophets.
I am the Word.
The suffering servant.
The lamb.
The shepherd.
I am the promise of the Scriptures.

At a table in Emmaus
A risen Jesus makes a church
From fellowship and fiery hearts.
Clear your eyes.
Find me in the bread and wine,
The liturgy of love. 

On the road from Emmaus
A risen Jesus makes a church
Of trust and truth and zeal.
A church of footsteps, his with ours,
Ever moving.
