1 Lord of the living, in Your name assembled
We join to thank You for the life remembered.
O God, have mercy, to Your children giving
Hope in believing.
2 Help us to treasure all that will remind us
Of the enrichment in the days behind us.
Your love has set us in the generations,
God of creation.
3 May we, whenever tempted to dejection,
Strongly recapture thoughts of resurrection.
You gave us Jesus to defeat our sadness
With Easter gladness.
4 Lord, You can lift us from the grave of sorrow
Into the presence of Your own tomorrow;
Give to Your people for the day's affliction
