Jesus is Alive

The hammer screamed “death” as it pounded in the nails

While angry voices shouted for blood without fail.


Tears poured down the faces of those in the distance

While the soldiers laughed and scorned pure innocence.


He cried to His Father, but was all alone.

His blood streamed down the weathered cross

Covering the sin and stain of the wandering lost.


The curtain ripped from heaven to earth below

There are no barriers–God can be known!


He slept alone in the blackened ground.

Two days passed with sorrow and without a sound


But the third day showed Jesus could not be bound.

The angel said, “He is alive!  He is not here!


Dear child, there is no need for trembling and fear.”

Jesus lives today and you are not alone.
