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 did foreordain
what happened next
the guards could not explain
the earth did quake
an angel by the cave
rolled back the stone
that covered up the grave
the angel shone with brightness
all aglow
the guards in fear
were deadened in their woe
and then it happened . . .
just as He had said
Jesus
the Savior
rose up
from
the
dead
