True Easter

when pharisees and saducess
and men of might and valour
conspired with men to rob of men
of Him the glorious power

they spoke of plans
concocted schemes
and as a wolf devours
they nailed him up upon a  tree
at the third and darkened hour
they sought to block
The Rock with rock
from granite hewn a coffin womb

as sunlight turned the dark to day
some women went to mourn and pray
they went to roll the stone away
they went to sing and praise His name

and ere they neared the pitless tomb
Behold! Behold! There was no groom
in his place an angel sat
who spoke of things a simple fact

He Lives! He Lives!
The Son of God has Life!
Death He takes and Life He gives!
the end of fear and strife

For Jesus Christ has died for you
and risen three days hence
to take away your sins from you
so a new you may commence

    Awesome poem! Thanks for sharing. (BTW, there is a typo in the first line in the spelling of “Pharisees.”)

    thank you for the compliment, and pointing out the typo, sometimes I get to typing way too fast 🙂
