LyricsThe lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
1 In the walking on the road, we saw him.
... we knew he was alive!
2 We set out to find his friends to tell them ...
3 But then we became afraid without him.
We ran out in o the street to tell them, ev’ryone that
“God has raised him up and we have seen the Lord!”
We took bread as he had done and then we blessed it,
broke it, offered it.
In the breaking of the bread, we saw Him!
4 Suddenly our eyes were opened, there within ...
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
