To the Tune NEAR THE CROSS (7 6. 7 6. and refrain)


1. On that dry Emmaus road    Luke 24:13-35

heavy hearts still keening

Once the answers seemed so close

on the brink of meaning

Meet us here, Jesus, Lord!

Walk with us, we urge you

Oh, how slow we are to see,

Open up your Scriptures

 

2. Jesus, speak to us your truth

How our hearts are burning!

Keep us on Emmaus' road

Keep us ever learning

Meet us here, Jesus, Lord!

Walk with us, we urge you.

Oh, how slow we are to see,

Open up your Scriptures

 

3. Feed us with your Word, O Lord,

Our hearts need it daily

Feed us with the Bread of Life

Feed us, precious Saviour

Stay with us, Jesus, Lord!

Stay with us, we urge you.

Oh, how slow we are to see,

Open up your Scriptures


4. Now we go to tell the world

we must share the good news:

It is True! The Saviour lives!

Have you heard the good news?

Go with us, Jesus, Lord!

Strengthen us, we pray you.

Oh, how slow we are to go,

Send us with you Gospel.
