St Thomas

1 My Lord, my God, the Living One!
The Father's power has raised his Son,
bestowed on him the title "Lord"
and bidden followers spread the Word.

2 My Lord, my God, the Living One!
Our troubling doubts are overcome;
with Thomas now Christ's wounds we see,
undoubted proofs of victory.

3 My Lord, my God, the Living One!
What Easter wonders have been done.
Like Thomas we rejoice to know
that death is a defeated foe.

4 My Lord, my God, the Living One!
His death, his life, we make our own.
We die to past mistakes and wrongs;
we rise with Christ to sing new songs.

5 My Lord, my God, the Living One!
The Lamb triumphant on the throne
with resurrection flag unfurled
extends God's pardon to the world.
