(Sullivan/Dean/Monger) 2024

We all had different reasons to be there
There was a light up ahead that only we were seeing
And we only have the stories at the end
Secrets and confessions and mostly told to strangers

That all things will pass by and by
Is the only promise that we need
And to raise up our eyes as we walk on the stone
And to go as the long road will lead

The birds were watching silent from the trees 
As we came down from the hills, dust blowing from our footprints
And all to see a miracle unfold
A place that we had dreamed, a different kind of justice

Hymn – excerpt from Idumea

And am I born to die?
To lay this body down!
And must my trembling spirit fly
Into a world unknown?

And see the Judge with glory crowned,
And see the flaming skies! 

(Charles Wesley 1763 / Ananias Davisson 1816)
