Christ is Risen (Psalms on the Trail)

AT in Cumberland Valley May 2013

On the AT in Cumberland Valley, May 2013

Now the green blade rises from the buried grain,

wheat that in dark earth many days has lain;

loves lives again, that with the dead has been;

love is come again like wheat arising green.

In the grave they laid him, love by hatred slain,

thinking that he would never wake again,

laid in the earth like grain that sleeps unseen;

love is come again like wheat arising green.

Forth he came at Easter like the risen grain,

he that for three days in the grave had lain;

raised from the dead, my living Lord is seen;

love is come again like wheat arising green.

When our hearts are wintry, grieving, or in pain,

your touch can call us back to life again,

fields of our hearts that dead and bare have been;

love is come again like wheat arising green.

Text by John MacLeod Campbell Crum, 1872-1958
