An Offering for Pascha

For us you die

Do we give thanks?

With love you rise

Do we give thanks?

 

Glorious sacrifice

Do we pray?

Surrendered life

Do we pray?

 

In body you preach

Do we listen?

With blood you teach

Do we listen?

 

Low we receive

Do we understand?

High we believe

Do we understand?

 

Father’s descent

In spirit bathed

By hands dead

Risen in days

 

All we that sin

Set us free

By word to live

Help us see

 

Humble and contrite

On knees submit

Our pride aside

Hearts we lift

 

Thief’s request

You we trust

Kingdom confessed

Lord remember us

 

Two worlds combined

Divine and human

Your cross the sign

This holy union
