Are not our Hearts Burning within Us

This simple song for children, was written in the 1970s by American Roman Catholic liturgical musician, songwriter and at-the-time priest, Carey Landry (b 1944).   It is based on the story of the disciples walking with Jesus on the road to Emmaus.

It was originally released by North American Liturgy Resources, and was included on the first Glory and Praise compilation album released in 1980 (ref), and in volume 1 of Landry's "Hi God" series.  It was also included in More Songs of the Spirit - Songs and Hymns of the Renewal Volume 2, published by Kevin Mayhew Ltd in the UK in 1981.  However it does not appear on any of Landry's re-mastered CDs, and doesn't appear to have been published anywhere recently.

The song is set to an unnamed tune, also by Landry. This is a three-part round, with a 3/4 time signature. In the key of F, the first few notes are FFF A_ BAG A_F  with accompanying chords F / Bm / F

Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on page 3 of this website. A rough outline is:
1 Are not our hearts burning within us?
Are not our hearts lighted with fire?

2 Jesus is with us is risen is with us;
Jesus is risen is with us today!

3 Jesus is the Lord! Jesus is the Lord!

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Are not our hearts burning within us?
Are not our hearts lighted with fire?

Jesus is with us is risen is with us;
Jesus is risen is with us today!

Jesus is the Lord! Jesus is the Lord!
