You are the Resurrection and the Life

Christ Jesus,
You understand the pain of loss, 
the grief that seems to take
the air from my lungs.
You are the Resurrection 
and the Life.
All our hope is in you.

Lord Jesus,
may I find a way through
the darkness 
to the light of your love.
You are the Resurrection 
and the Life.
All our hope is in you.

Christ Jesus,
you wept at the death of your friend, Lazarus.
Now your compassion wipes the tears from our eyes.
May we find comfort in reaching out to others 
who feel lost and alone.
You are the Resurrection and the Life.
All our hope is in you.
