Symbols of The Passion and Resurrection of Jesus Day 6
Artwork and Verse by Rev’d Paul Collings
The Paschal Candle
Jesus, Lord of yesterday and today, you are my beginning and my end, the Alpha and Omega. To you be glory and honour for ever. May the light of your rising, dispel the darkness my heart and mind this day. Amen
Sacred flame of Easter Glory
Light the darkness of each heart.
Burn afresh, inspire and cleanse us
Resurrection life impart.
Alpha beacon of the morning
Omega lantern of the night
Shine just now, life giving Jesus
End our darkness, dawn new light.
Light the path you would us journey,
Beam your guidance, show us where
We can see your risen presence
And in seeing, meet you there.
Set our lives aflame, burn in us
Light heart’s kindling with your glow
Of that glorious Easter rising
And your risen presence know.
