Jesus, you do not exploit
Power used as advantage
You empty yourself of power’s privileges
You choose solidarity, even with slaves
You choose womb and flesh
vulnerability and blood
You welcome humility- our earthiness, our dust
You welcome the mission of salvation
You accept humiliation and torture and agony
You embrace death so creation may have new and true life
moment of silence
We exalt you, Risen Christ!
We praise you and adore you!
Your name above all names
Your story shared through all generations
Your arms open in welcome for all people
May every tongue confess, “Jesus Christ is Lord!”
May every soul receive your embrace!
