Tag Archives: Christ has risen!

EARLY IN THE MORNING

EARLY IN THE MORNING,

The women came to see…

Who would roll away the stone,

Their spices they wouldn’t need.

The stone was big and heavy

But had been rolled away…

Visions of angels

Met them on Resurrection Day.

All their sorrow gone

They hurried away to tell…

The rest of His disciples

Of the silenced death knell!

Peter and John came running–

Not all believed of course,

Until Christ appeared to them

Behind locked doors!

But seeing isn’t believing

As even Scripture tells,

Some had doubts, did not believe,

WITHOUT FAITH…the flesh kills.

Come to the feasting–

See the open grave,

Christ is risen Sunday

Believer’s souls to save!
