The joy of recognition: It is the Lord.
The joy of sharing a simple meal.
The joy of being commissioned to feed the flock of Christ.
The joy of going where Christ is leading, feeling safe in his risen arms.
Rejoice with me, says Mary of Magdala, for I have seen the Lord.
Rejoice with me, says Thomas, for the Lord came back for me - My Lord and My God
Rejoice with me, says Mary, Mother of the Lord, for I have waited for the coming of the Spirit in the company of the Brethren.
Rejoice with me, says Peter, for Christ has healed me and entrusted me with an important role in his ongoing work.
REJOICE with us, sing the praises of our Risen Lord, and come join the Dance of Life - be indeed an Easter people and live an Alleluia life.
Love of Jesus, fill us.
Joy of Jesus, surprise us.
Peace of Jesus, flood us.
Light of Jesus, transform us.
Touch of Jesus, warm us.
Strength of Jesus, encourage us.
By your glorious wounds, heal us,
and bring us rejoicing with all your saints
into your Kingdom of perfect peace.
Water of Life
I am the Water of life,
the living fountain
that will refresh and renew you.
I am the Light of the World,
that will give you the courage
to enter the darkness of the world,
and to keep the faith in a changing church.
I am the Bread of Life,
the ground grain that rises as life-giving bread,
that will sustain you
and help you to grow in faith,
and deepen your communion
with the saints, living and departed.
I am the True Vine,
that can unite you
and nurture your desire
to be poured out in joyful service,
like the crushed fruit poured into the chalice of my love.
I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life,
the path, the means and the end of all your journeys.
I am the resurrection and the life,
that will bring you to your final destination,
to the one God and Father of us all:
to him be the glory for ever and ever. Amen
