living with his followers, praying and teaching.
- Many there were who found healing
no matter how unimportant or poor.

proclaimed to be alive for ever and raised by God.
- Quite alone, his friends and his disciples
remembering him at their meals,

vehicles of your Spirit are we who follow them.
- Word of God you are everywhere, you're now transmitted
xeroxed, taped and videoed by us your people,

zealously sharing the news of your love.
