On the road to Emmaus

They didn’t realise he was at their side.
Their disappointments, hurts would not abide
when he exposed the answers in his Word
to what confused and puzzled them, – they heard,
their hearts were warmed, their eyes were opened, saw,
and knew their Saviour was alive once more!
‘How wonderful if all this could be true!’
It is! He opens minds to truly view,
and live with him because he lives for ever:
nothing his people now
from him can sever.

He ate the fish, appeared when doors were locked.
His followers were startled, frightened, shocked;
on hands which had been nailed they looked, believed,
with joy and worship, life divine received.
For he had been an offering for their sins:
his offspring share the riches that he brings.
(cf.Isaiah 53:10-12)
