Easter Resurrection

Alleluia!  He is Risen!

it happened
on the first day of the week
the guards stood by so that
no one would seek to steal
the body of the Savior King
make an outrageous claim
that they had seen Him
come to life
as He had said He would and
spread deception
that would not be good
but none could stop
what God had foreordained
what happened next
the guards could not explain
for the earth did quake
and an angel by the cave
rolled back the stone
that covered up the grave
the angel shone with a brightness
all aglow
the guards in fear
were deadened in their woe
and then it happened . . .
just as He had said
the Savior
rose up
