We sing an Easter song as the season closes.



Today’s reading don’t take a hold on me. With the Easter season disappearing, I feel like stirring up some of its feelings.

Perhaps you have heard my story from 1967. The folk singer Ray Repp had a buddy named Mark who was killed in Viet Nam. At Mark’s funeral Ray stood in the sanctuary of the St. Louis Cathedral singing this song he and Mark had composed together.

CHORUS:
I am the resurrection and the life;
He who believes in me will never die.
I am the resurrection and the life;
He who believes in me will live a new life.


I have come to bring the truth;
I have come to bring you life;
If you believe then you shall live.

CHORUS:

In my word all men will come to know
It is love which makes the Spirit grow
If you believe then you shall live.

CHORUS:

Keep in mind the things that I have said
Remember me in the breaking of the bread
If you believe then you shall live.

CHORUS
