Poetry Sunday ~ He is Risen ~


He Has Risen!
***
After the love and glory
forsaken was our Lord.
Judged, beaten, abandoned
given to the hoard.

They cried out, “Blasphemer
hang him, let him die.”
He did nothing wrong, yet
“Kill him!” was their cry.

The cross a heavy burden
weighing his shoulder down;
blood swept his forehead
piercing thorns his crown.

“Please forgive them Father
for they know not what they do.
I now commend my spirit,
your hands I fall into.”

The sky blackened; the earth erupts
people fall to their knees.
Realizing the Son of Man
had calmed the mighty seas.

The sepulcher is empty
the angels came to say.
“Your Lord is now among you
He has risen on this day.”

The Messiah came to save us
through all that he had seen.
Our darkened spirit cleansed
the slate of sin wiped clean.

Praise be to heaven
to God and all the earth.
For loving man enough to bless
us with our Savior’s birth. 
***
May you all have
a blessed
Resurrection Sunday!

Luke 24: [44] And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
[45] Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
[46] And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
[47] And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
[48] And ye are witnesses of these things.
[49] And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
[50] And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
[51] And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
[52] And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:
[53] And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
