Alleluia, alleluia!

1 As we walk along beside you,
and we hear you speak of mercy,
then it seems our hearts are burning
for we find you in the sharing of the word.

2 As we ask that you stay with us
and we watch what you are doing,
then our eyes begin to open
for we see you in the breaking of the bread.

3 As we reach for you believing
and we go to love and serve you,
then our lives will be proclaiming
that we know you in the rising from the dead.
Lord, alleluia!
