image :: Lyric No.9, Distant Hope, Koshiro Onchi (1951, Japanese)
“That they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God.”
The body that lay lifeless in the tomb is ours.
The body that rose again on the third day is ours.
The body that ascended above all the heights of heaven
to the right hand of the Father’s glory is ours.
If then we acknowledge the price He paid for our salvation in a lowly body,
we, too, are to rise to share His glory.
The promise He made will be fulfilled in the sight of all:
“Whoever acknowledges me before men,
I, too, will acknowledge him before my Father who is in heaven.”
Leo the Great, 5th century
