And I Will Raise It Up- - Jn2:19


 


Sunday morning


the three of them


they set out


 


on a  visit


carrying spices


to His tomb


 


with heavy hearts


this matter weighed


about the stone


 


who will roll it


away from the entrance


an angel


 


who already did


accosted them this way


He is not here


 


He is risen


and has gone to Galilee


ahead of you


 


there He will


meet with you so


tell the others


 


they trembled


those bewildered women


and fled the scene


 


to tell Peter


nonsense thought he


and went himself


 


to see


empty linen wrappings


and he realized


 


what scripture and He


said that He would rise up


from the dead


 


in three days


He had said destroy this temple


and I will raise it up
