The Empty Tomb


Oh, three humble women early on Resurrection Sunday,
carried spices to anoint Jesus' body
laying in His grave. 'Who will roll the stone
away from the entrance of the tomb? ' They asked each
other filled with gloom.

Suddenly, they looked up filled with fright, as they
beheld a young man dressed in white, who comforted them,
'Please do not be afraid, Jesus' body is not in the grave.
Just as He said, He has risen from the dead. Go and tell
his disciples and Peter, too. He has gone into Galilee
ahead of you.'

But when the women told the men, they of course did not
believe them. When eter and his friend (John) ran towards
the tomb, all they found was an empty room.
