Walking, Talking to Emmaus

Luke 24:13-35


They were walking to Emmaus,

Seven miles from Jerusalem.

Then Jesus walked and talked with them,

But they did not recognize Him.


They walked and talked; they walked and talked.

Jesus was a great listener.

They talked about Christ crucified.

Women could not find His body.


After Jesus had heard them out,

He told them Christ had to suffer.

Then He would enter His glory.

So said Moses and the prophets.


Christ stayed with them in Emmaus.

He broke bread; then He disappeared.
