Along the dusty roads
you walked and talked with friends
you took your time long the way
the sick and heartbroke to attend
No hurry in your manner
yet urgency pushed you on
each moment was as it would be
until the battle you had won
It was a fight to save our souls
and it took your very life
to overcome our wayardness
and to free us from the strife
Lord Jesus, fully one with God
you are also fully us
and thus you are so we might be
more than dust to dust
Increase our faith in you this day
so our souls might know your peace
may we trust in the cross on which you died
and from death now be released
You live again and always will
and you promise we can too
and so today we celebrate
our lives in you made new
