Tune: St Fulbert

('Ye choirs of new Jerusalem')

Luke 24 v.45-49


The risen Jesus did appear

To the disciples clear

He said, Thus it is written, know

The Scriptures do me show


Show it was necessary for

Christ to suffer for sure

And to rise from the dead third day

And now to live alway


And that repentance, remission

Be preached, sins forgiven

In Christ's name, mission unto all

Nations who hear His call


At Jerusalem it shall

Begin, and too know well

That you are witnesses of me

Of all you hear and see


And, behold, I send the promise

of my Father, true this

Upon you, the Spirit He be

To guide you constantly


But stay a while in the city* (*Jerusalem)

Until the time you be

Endued with power from on high

My presence e'er you nigh
