We shall go out with hope of resurrection (hymn) — June Boyce-Tillman, UK

Tune: Londonderry is commended for this text

We shall go out with hope of resurrection,
We shall go out, from strength to strength go on,
We shall go out and tell our stories boldly,
Tales of a love that will not let us go.
We’ll sing our songs of wrongs that can be righted,
We’ll dream our dream of hurts that can be healed,
We’ll weave a cloth of all the world united
Within the vision of a Christ who sets us free.

We’ll give a voice to those who have not spoken,
We’ll find the words for those whose lips are sealed,
We’ll make the tunes for those who sing no longer,
Vibrating love alive in every heart.
We’ll share our joy with those who are still weeping,
Chant hymns of strength for hearts that break in grief,
We’ll leap and dance the resurrection story
Including all within the circles of our love.
