1. Jesus died,
And rose again.
He shares in all our fear
And pain.

2. Jesus died,
But now he lives.
He saves us, heals us,
And forgives.

3. Jesus died,
Yet loves us all,
Though he is great,
And we, so small.

4. Jesus died
For everyone:
Our way, our truth, our life:
God’s Son.

for I am gentle and humble in heart

On your gentle way,
In all I think, and say, and do.

Whose lives I touch, Lord,
Just like you,

On your humble way,
And let me share your heart and mind.
Then I will gladly love all those
I meet, Lord,
And all humankind.

On your narrow way,
Although its comforts may be few.
Then I will gladly be the slave
Of everyone, Lord,
Just like you.
