Easter Is True

While dark the women walked to the Tomb,
Their souls downcast, dreary, and full of gloom;
The despair they felt the last few days,
Drowned out all hope among their malaise;
But as they could see from a distance,
Something must have happened with assistance;
The stone in front of the Tomb was rolled away,
They wondered that something must have gone astray;
Two men appeared with clothes so bright,
Causing the women to bow in their fright;
The men asked why they search for living among dead,
Jesus had risen just as he promised and said;
The Tomb was now empty and all was not lost,
God had brought life through the expensive cost;
Hopelessness of yesterday was now gone,
The ugly duckling turned to a beautiful Swan;
Jesus Christ suffered and died for you and me,
Because He loved us He chose to set us free;
Easter is now permanently in our history,
So we enjoy the benefits of that mystery;
Where the Son of God came down from glory,
To become like us and enter our failing story;
He took the punishment our penalty deserved,
Giving us His righteousness that He preserved;
By amazing grace granting us eternal entrance,
The Holy Spirit empowers with every remembrance;
So we celebrate this day that Adam and Eve looked to,
Rejoicing that Jesus is Risen is amazingly true!
