We walk the way that has no end (Good Friday Hymn)

Tune: Winchester (Ride on, ride on in majesty)

We walk in silence while the earth

Quivers and cracks beneath our feet

Swallows our dreams and shatters worth

Solemn, we trudge to hearts’ dull beat.

 

We walk while singing, motley choir

of traitors, lovers, meek and proud

Small sparks of apostolic fire

light up the path, lighten the shroud.

 

We walk in solidarity

and sing of hope that never dies

We march to end disparity

graves open as our spirits rise.

 

We walk the way that has no end

Free to evolve, transform our creed

Hearts, torn like curtains, start to mend

Love rising now in word, in deed.

 

(optional verse)

There are no strangers on the way

Just travellers who will soon be friends

And destination —there is none:

A spiral path that never ends.
