With inspiration from Pilgrims’ Hymn by Stephen Paulus
Yes, even before we call on your name
Lord, you meet us. Before we humbly ask,
In a single branch of Jesse you came,
Offering life which darkness cannot mask.
Unceasing love, O your unceasing love
Falls freshly from your blessed throne of grace.
Calling a servant spirit from a dove
To enter all who doth enter this place.
Reign in your holy Word beyond us Lord,
Bringing all Easter’s fresh faced color forth,
Alight on hearts of women, children, men toward
One transcendent life of thanks and worth.
Both now and ever and unto ages
Your holy Resurrection light suspends.
