Don't you just love good news? It lifts your spirits and gives you hope in the present and for the future. Well, yesterday offered the best news the world has ever known and we have a poem to cap off the Easter weekend.
We posted it last year and it was such a hit here it is again for you to soak in and relish the good news.
by Evangeline B. White
The day started somber on the way to the tomb.
Spices in hand, grieving hearts, a sense of doom.
The earth shook suddenly, a violent quake.
An angel came down and some noise he did make.
The guards were first to see this marvelous sight.
As the stone was rolled away by the angel's might.
Like dead men the guards froze and fell.
Then scurried to the priests their story to tell.
The women went in to the tomb to see
Their Savior called Jesus from Galilee.
His body was gone. The tomb was empty.
Two angels appeared and said, “He is risen from the dead!”
In wonder the women went out to tell the men
What they heard, saw, and where they had been.
In amazement Peter and John ran ahead,
To see if it was just as the women had said.
Inside the tomb only linen clothes lay,
Folded and neat; then the men went away.
Jesus appeared to the women with greetings.
Then along the road and in the midst of a meeting.
Jesus is alive and holds in His hand,
Keys to death and hell, under His command.
Good news to all, to all who will hear.
The Savior has risen, no need to fear.
Respond to His knock and answer His call.
His blood paid the price once and for all.
You can find the stories in this poem outlined in Matt. 28, Luke 24, John 20, Rev. 1:18
