08 Battle For The Eternal Destiny Of Humankind - Poem by Royston Allen

VIII - Humankind is saved

Then out from the tomb in triumph Christ arose
with victory and supremacy over all His foes.
That moment the destiny of this world changed
as the life of Jesus for ours was exchanged

“Why do you look for Jesus amongst the dead”
these were the words the angels to Mary said.
Later in the garden she heard Him called her name
then turning around “Rabboni” was her refrain.

The voice she thought she’d never hear again
came speaking from the grave so clear and plain.
There before her in resurrection victory
stood her Lord, untouchable, but alive was He.

The gates of death He had burst open wide
setting free all of the prisoners locked inside.
“Oh grave you no longer have any hold on me.”
“Your sting is removed and Jesus holds the key.”

(to be continued …)
