1. Lord of the living, in Your name assembled We join to thank You for the life remembered. O God, have mercy, to Your children giving Hope in believing. 2. Help us to treasure all that will remind us Of the enrichment in the days behind us. Your love has set us in the generations, God of creation. 3. May we, whenever tempted to dejection, Strongly recapture thoughts of resurrection. You gave us Jesus to defeat our sadness With Easter gladness. 4. Lord, You can lift us from the grave of sorrow Into the presence of Your own tomorrow; Give to Your people for the day's affliction Your benediction.
