There was Darkness (Easter: Part 1)

One Holy Weekend

I’m a little late for Easter with this Easter poem, but I thought I’d share it anyway.

One Holy Weekend

Earth and Heaven met, and thunder roared.

Dead men walked, and leaden darkness fell.

He hung in gross indignity, God’s precious Son.

The universe convulsed, a touch of hell.

 

The Lord of light and loving turned away,

And for a moment dark and evil reigned.

Disciples cowered, depairing women wept.

A futile death it seemed, and nothing gained.

 

Then Sunday morning history changed its course.

Death defeated, Christ the Saviour rose.

The sacrifice complete, for our rebellion,

Salvation’s way, the deal brought to a close.

 

Rejoice, sing joyful praise because of Easter.

Walk as children of the living King.

Celebrate God’s gift of deep renewal.

His living water changes everything.
