empty tomb

And he said to them, "Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him.”

Mark 16:6

Look into the empty tomb

tell me what you see.

The Crucified One is now risen;

what could this really mean?

Suffering Savior sent to die.

Scattered sheep return; nothing remains

but an open tomb and grave clothes.

He is risen just as He said!

Resurrection changes it all

and no more is death the final foe.

I died with Him there, baptism buried,

new life awaits me as I rise also.

The tomb is empty

but my life is full.

Filled with Christ now

as in His life now I go.
