IF YOU HAD SEEN THE EMPTY TOMB?


If you had seen
The empty tomb
That Sunday morn
Would you have told
The Story that saves
Our sinner soul,
Or out of fear
Of being labeled delusional
Would you have
Hidden the truth
That can make us all free
From the darkness of death?

The women who saw
Our risen Lord that morn
Was not afraid to speak
Of what they had seen
Even to the men
Who did not believe them.
Their fearlessness should
Be an example to all of us,
And make our voices ring
With the story
As if we had seen
The empty tomb.
