Response of hopeful people

Bit of an early start today because I was leading an open-air ecumenical Sunrise Service at 6am.  It was cold and dark and muddy!  I fond this reasonable responsive reading to use: 

When we are despairing;

when the world is full of grief;

when we see no way ahead,

and hope has gone away:

Roll back the stone.

Although we fear change;

although we are not ready;

although we’d rather weep

and run away:

Roll back the stone.

Because we’re coming with the women;

because we hope where hope is vain:

because you call us from the grave

and show the way:

Roll back the stone.
