Nearing a village he walked on ahead.
“Spend the night here,” his companions then pled.
“Daylight is fading, this place has a bed.”
So he remained to get rested and fed.
Then, at the table where there was some bread.
He gave it to them, both broken and blessed.
That was the moment they saw him full right.
In that same instant he vanished from sight.
Feeling the truth to the depths of their souls,
turning around they returned to their home.
“Jesus is risen. He’s no longer dead.
Wonders are found in the breaking of bread.”
