Tune: Third Day by Brenton Prigge - May also be sung to the traditional shanty tune DRUNKEN SAILOR (public domain)

Once was man who was like no other

Taught us to care and to love each other

Makes of us all sisters and brothers

Said God loved us dearly

Hey ho and up he rises

Calling us to follow

Healing he gave to the broken hearted

Giving regard to the unregarded

Calls us to go on as he started

Said Love as I’ve loved you

Hey ho and up he rises

Calling us to follow

How he offends all the high and mighty

See how they fear his message, rightly

See how he stands for what is right, for

justice and for mercy

Hey ho and up he rises

Calling us to follow

See how they try to nail him down, oh

How they do mock with a thorny crown, oh

See how they raise him on that cross - no

Justice and no mercy

Hey ho and up he rises

Calling us to follow

Dark is the tomb as dark as death now

Dark is the world where is the hope now

What shall we do with Jesus gone now

Hope is in the tomb now

See how the Son now rises

Up from the darkness rises

See now the new life rises

On the third day rising

Hey ho and up he rises

Calling us to follow
