Walking in him
Since our Lord departed this earth our hearts have been heavy and sad,
but he gave us a friend, the Holy Spirit who has made us glad!
A body the Father had prepared for his Son, in order that souls would be won.
His physical body was limited to that Holy land, but the good news of him would spread to the whole world by God’s mighty hand.
With Peter he began to build his Church, his mystical body, me and you, his greater works through us, gifted by God to do.
Like bright lights we shine in the darkness and the shadows must depart, God’s chosen see and there is a stirring in their hearts.
Their eyes are opened their ears hear, the *dead come alive to the Bread of Heaven who then is near.
Awake oh sleeper the Son has risen upon you, he has removed your heart of stone that was given to you from the Fall, a new heart you now have and your sins he cannot **remember at all.
He is still walking on the earth in his people; you can see him in the light they bring, of his praises they always sing.
These are his trees that bear good fruit, he plants them in the world to behold, and through their good works the Gospel is told.
They are the Church, his body doing his greater works, his spotless bride for whom he died.
They are walking with him in a world of darkness and gloom but they shine with a light brighter than the full moon.
*”Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. John 5:25 NASB.
**”Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the LORD, “Though your sins are as scarlet, They will be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They will be like wool. Isaiah 1:18 NASB.
