A Lenten Litany

 

A Lenten Litany

Jesus,

We would follow you into the wilderness

In our hunger for meaning

Our thirsting for more

Jesus our Teacher

May we be your disciples

We would follow you through town and village

To search out the hurting

The grieving, the poor

Jesus our Teacher

May we be your disciples

 

We would follow you to Jerusalem

Where the wise perceive little

And the blind sees more

Jesus our Teacher

May we be your disciples

We would follow you even to the Cross

To suffer the mocking

  And weapons of war

  Jesus our Teacher

  May we be your disciples

 

  We would follow you to Galilee

  To that homecoming fire

  On the distant shore

  Jesus our Teacher

  May we be your disciples
