Christ is Risen fiom the Dead

                           Christ Is Risen from the Dead

            From poetry …

He died for us upon the cross

He rose for us on the third day

He feels with us our every loss

He walks with us along the way

And evermore

He waits for us on the far shore.

            … to prayer …                                                  … to Union

You died for us upon the cross                                   You died for me upon the cross

You rose for us on the third day                                 You rose for me on the third day

You feel with us our every loss                                   You feel with me my every loss

You walk with us along the way                                 You walk with me along the way

And evermore                                                             And evermore

You wait for us on the far shore.                                You wait for me on the far shore.
