St Thomas

My Lord, my God, the Living One!
The Father's power has raised his Son,
bestowed on him the title "Lord"
and bidden followers spread the Word.

My Lord, my God, the Living One!
Our troubling doubts are overcome;
with Thomas now Christ's wounds we see,
undoubted proofs of victory.

My Lord, my God, the Living One!
What Easter wonders have been done.
Like Thomas we rejoice to know
that death is a defeated foe.

My Lord, my God, the Living One!
His death, his life, we make our own.
We die to past mistakes and wrongs;
we rise with Christ to sing new songs.

My Lord, my God, the Living One!
The Lamb triumphant on the throne
with resurrection flag unfurled
extends God's pardon to the world.
