The Lord … come to you

Jesus appears to the disciples by William Hole, via Wikimedia Commons

The Lord of the empty tomb,
the conqueror of gloom,
   come to you.
The Lord of the garden walking,
the Lord to Mary talking,
   come to you.
The Lord of the upper room,
dispelling fear and doom,
   come to you.
The Lord on the road to Emmaus,
the Lord giving hope to Thomas,
   come to you.
The Lord appearing on the shore,
giving us life for evermore,
   come to you.

David Adam, 1936- , composer of prayers in the Celtic idiom


John 20:19-20

On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.
