Rabboni!
Music and Lyrics by Roger Linder
Lyrical theme by Bethany Carlson
Jesus
Woman, why is it that you weep?
Who are you looking for?
He who once lay here fast asleep
Is resting here no more.

Mary Magdalene
Sir, have you taken my Lord away?
Please tell me where he can be.
As you tended your gardens here today,
Did you see anyone, did you see?

Jesus
Mary, it is I. I've returned here today.

Mary Magdalene
Rabboni! Can it be, are you really alive?

Jesus
Do not cling to me, I have yet to ascend
Tell my brothers, all, that you have seen the Lord.



Scriptural Basis - John 20: 14-17
14 At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus. 15 "Woman," he said, "why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?" Thinking he was the gardener, she said, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him." 16 Jesus said to her, "Mary." She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, "Rabboni!" (which means Teacher). 17 Jesus said, "Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet returned to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, `I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'"
