THE RESURRECTION

Standard

A bloodied cross
Was dismantled
Upon the ground
Of Golgotha,
Drying in the
Death-stenched air.
Fragrant linens
Encased scourged flesh
But for a moment…

Blinding light
Revealed blood-soaked
Linens discarded in a
Rich man’s tomb.
As foretold,
On the third day,
He had arisen.
He was raised
By resurrection power
To receive His reward:
The nations of this world,
And the glory of
His matchless name.
