Emmaus Event


Tune: Lux Eoi

('Alleluia, Alleluia! Hearts to heaven')

Luke 24 v.13-32 parts


Two disciples to Emmaus

On their journey they did press

Talked of all that happened those days

With wondering and dismay

But the risen Jesus drew near

And unto them did appear

They did not know Him straight away

Though they knew later that day


'Twas when they unto the village

Of Emmaus neared, their stage

Said to Jesus, Abide with us

For dusk falls we do confess

And Jesus did then with them stay

They did know Him in the way

He took bread, broke it, then it gave

Risen Saviour, still does save


Spiritual eyes then were open

They did recognise Him then

But He then vanished from their sight

He who is of life the Light

They said, Did not our hearts burn in

Us, time He talked with us when

On our journey, and did explain

Scriptures of Himself shown plain
