On the Road (Hearts are burning) … road to Emmaus song

With many churches focusing on the Luke 24 Walk to Emmaus narrative this Sunday and my approaching Emmaus Walk involvement in a months time … I found myself the past 24 hours writing a song as my reflection on that gospel passage.   More about that soon ..

I’m typing this late morning on Anzac Day, home an hour or so from a moving local Anzac ceremony at a local park.  I offered a prayer.  Our church once again offered Anzac Day coffee, tea and Anzac biscuit hospitality.  Thanks HB and team.  In recent years, thanks to my brother’s wonderful family history work some years back, I’m increasingly grateful of the service offered by my grandfather Thomas Laur McGregor at Gallipoli, Middle East and France during WW1 as an ambulance officer.

On the Road (Hearts are burning)

Far too long
we have walked in fear
Far too long in despair
‘til Christ transcending
transforms, revealing
in bread that is broken and shared

Hearts are burning
Spirits stirring
Eyes are op’ning
On the road
   Hearts are burning
Spirits stirring
As Christ meets us … on the road

O Christ, your presence
It draws, awakens
Your Spirit within us ignites
O Lord, inspire us
O Lord, sustain us
You send us to love, be your light

Hearts are burning
Spirits stirring
Eyes are op’ning
On the road
Hearts are burning
Spirits stirring
Christ, you meet us … on the road
Hearts are burning
Spirits stirring
Christ, you meet us … on the road
