An Easter Blessing

The Lord of the empty tomb, the conqueror of gloom, come to you.

The Lord in the garden walking, the Lord to Mary talking, come to you.

The Lord in 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. Amen.
