Raised on the cross, he draws us to his side
the son of Mary claims his destiny.
Alone, afraid, as one of us he died,
his darkest hour his greatest victory.
Raised from the tomb, he draws us to his side
the son of God calls us to trust his way.
In him we live, transformed and glorified,
God's new creation born on Easter day.
Raised up to God, he draws us to his side
the Lord of earth and heaven takes his place,
the path of life eternal opened wide;
with him forever we shall see God's face.
