Praying, Healing, Life Giving Presence

My Body

I gaze upon you, Body, lying in the grave
The pain gone, the blood no longer oozes, wet
Evil needed blotting from the earth
In chaos, evil and I have met

Even the earth trembled at My death
Body, You convulsed, the curtain tore,
Pain fulfilled its stabbing of My Flesh
The Flesh that from My Mother’s womb I bore

I gaze upon You before I breathe into You again
How You have served Me, My three and thirty years
How oft’ in silence I have bemused their many sins
Streaming across Your Face the many tears

I gaze upon You before I breathe into You again
Rise, that mankind may share Your eternity
I rise for them, strong, eternal, My Father’s Son
I stand in the beauty of Your glory

Stand, Alleluia, rise My Flesh
Angels look in awe at the risen Son
Sing Alleluia, Alleluia through the skies
I lay here dead but I have won

Now, to My Mother, Body, speed
Pain enough she has known these hours
Glory now she must only share
She, My Virgin Mother, earth’s fairest Flower
