THE WAY TO EMMAUS
They trudged away, weary and disappointed -
Their hearts were sad, and all their hopes seemed voided,
But as they went an unknown Person joined them.
He listened to their woes and their sad voices
And when He spoke to them His words were poignant
As He disclosed the route of God's Anointed:
That He much touch environments that were noisome
And die for men under His God's appointment;
Cross before crown could no way be avoided.
To linger with them they urgently enjoined Him -
Once He revealed Himself they did not loiter
But hastened to the saints, their hearts rejoicing.
