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
