The Tomb

In stillness before day, Feet tread, afraid Of wakening the dawn—Sabbath gone. Mourners come—these did not run When hope was dethroned, When nail drove through bone. Black space yawns where door should seal— Them out, Him in. One step in, crowding to see, Where is the body? Seeds of hope dislodge despair— Suddenly, two men when none were there. The women drop to the floor. “In this place of death, you seek Life? Did the Son not say, ‘Look for me on the third day?’” Trembling, they rise— Joy shines through eyes As they realize: Our Lord is alive! Power of grave—broken. Sting of death—like dew in sun. The women run. • L. Nagel • The messengers encouraged the women at the tomb to remember Jesus’ words. Jesus said He would come back to life, and He did!
