Easter Litany: Roll Back the Stone

Here’s an Easter litany from Janet Morley. It was posted on the Christian Aid website.

Roll Back the Stone: A Litany for Easter

When we are all despairing, 
when the world is full of grief, 
when we see no way ahead 
and hope has gone away: 
Roll back the stone.

Although we fear change, 
although we are not ready, 
although we’d rather weep 
and run away: 
Roll back the stone.

Because we’re coming with the women, 
because we hope where hope is vain, 
because you call us from the grave 
and show the way: 
Roll back the stone.
