Let These Dry Bones Rise (a new hymn for 05 Lent)

(to the tune of “Arise Your Light has Come” Festal Song)

Arise four winds, and sweep
down on us from the skies.
Breathe deep among us, breath of God
and let these dry bones rise.

Create in us O God
your Spirit and your Word,
Once broken, we shall stand again,
And know you are the Lord.

Though mortal, we shall live,
our hymns you coax from earth,
Dried up and lost, you claim us still
From graves we’ll shout new birth.

Arise four winds and sweep
down on us from the skies
Breathe deep among us, breath of God,
and let these dry bones rise.
