Luke 24:13-25 On the road to Emmaus

I don’t know if it’s true
I have my doubts like everyone else
I’m a pilgrim
a stranger
searching for that
for which my soul yearns
and when I hear the Word
and sing the songs
something happens within me
and I begin to feel at peace
there are times the words seem written
for me
and when I hear them
my heart burns with a peace
and love
               and discomfort
I can’t explain
but it is in the coming forward
and taking that piece of bread
               that cup of wine
and hearing the words
               This is my body
               This is my blood
               Given for you for forgiveness
               For life
that my heart leaps
and I know Christ
