Resurrection – A Poem

Last Sunday I was kind of tired in the afternoon so I lay down on the couch to take a nap. As I was dozing off the concept for this poem came to me. I realized that considering how important the resurrection of Christ is, I needed to write a poem about it. When I sat down to write it, this is what I came up with.

Risen from the grip of death
Empty tomb testifies to truth
Savior of the broken ones
Undeserving His banquet guests
Risen is our merciful Lord
Risen is our Holy God
Emmanuel lives again
Creator of all is the Light
To a lost and lonely world
Igniting in the hearts of men
Odes to One who loved us so
Now we all may rise again

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

    • Deb, Anything looks easy when you rely on the Holy Spirit to help! 🙂 He provides wisdom, strength, and so much more. I’ve actually been pondering doing a poetry workshop at my church, but I’m afraid people wouldn’t sign up because they would think writing poetry is too hard. Peace, Linda
