Resurrection


I needed to hear it tonight.

In the darkened cathedral,
I could feel the weight
of my fears
lifting
every time they said
“resurrection”.

They read of Ezekiel
in the Valley of Dry Bones,
when You said
“I will bring them to life”,
and I felt the weight lift.

They read the prophets
who predicted You,
and the apostles
who wrote of Your rising,
and I felt the weight lift.

And with every declaration,
“He is risen!!  Alleluia!!”
I felt myself clinging to it,
as if for the first time…
He is risen.  There is hope.
He is risen.  There is hope.

You don’t have to be afraid any more.
