Breath Bestowed

Tune: Vulpius - Gelobt Sei Gott

('Christ is the King, O friends rejoice')

John 20 v.19-23 parts


Evening of resurrection's day

Jesus to disciples did say

Peace be unto you now. always

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!


He showed them His wounded hands, side

The did Him see, it not denied

The risen Christ and none beside

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!


He did say, Peace be unto you

As my Father has sent me true

E'en so I send you out anew

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!


When He had said this He breathed on

The disciples, unto each one

Said, Receive the Spirit, it done

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!


Whose sins they forgive, forgiven

Were they e'en in that moment when

They proclaimed forgiving word then

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

            Thanks Rocky. Aww, why they decrease in a few weeks, just after Pentecost I think? Do them 'Hhallelujahs' hibernate? lol.
