Hymn – Emmaus-bound on Easter Day
1  Emmaus-bound on Easter Day,
Two travellers walked along the way.
They'd once had hope, but hope had died
When you, O Lord, were crucified.
2  When you appeared beside the two,
They could not see that it was you;
But as they talked and shared their pain,
You gave them hope and joy again.

3   For as you spoke to them God's word,
Explaining all they'd seen and heard,
They understood what God had done
And that a new day had begun.

4  They shared their home; you broke the bread.
They saw you, risen from the dead!
That moment's grace helped them to see
The gift of God's eternity.

​5  In scripture and at table, too,
O Risen Lord, may we know you.
And may your presence give us grace
To share God's love in every place.
