He’s Coming Back

(An Easter Poem)

.
All was silent since that day
The clouds hung dark and low
It seemed that even nature grieved
The sun refused to show
.
The man named Jesus had been hung
Upon a wooden cross
And all who’d followed Him despaired
And felt the heavy loss
.
But this day something new was felt
The sun began to shine
The birds began to chirp again
The air smelled quite divine
.
Excitement seem to start to rise
From somewhere deep within
The grass was green and things smelled fresh
As flowers bloomed again
.
And then we heard her voice cry out
As she ran down the hill
And screamed to us, “He is alive!”
The streets began to fill
.
Could it be true?! Was He alive?!
Reports began to flow
Disciples saw and talked to Him
Soon all the world would know
.
He bypassed the religious scribes
The Pharisees were stunned
The grave just couldn’t hold Him back
The victory was won
.
The nails put into His flesh
Engraved us in His hands
His blood bought healing, peace, and life
As heaven took command
.
Because He suffered what He did
The veil had been rent
Now all of us could speak with God
A new decree was sent
.
His followers began to meet
And speak a brand new tongue
The Holy Spirit filled them up
And brand new songs were sung
.
The sinners freedom had been bought
Not one soul need be lost
As Jesus Christ - Messiah - God
Had paid in full the cost
.
Believers gained the power He’d had
For which He’d shed His blood
He now resided in each one
And faith spread like a flood
.
Don’t fret about the world you see
He’s coming back once more
And every one will bow to see
Him come through Heaven’s door
.
Be wise - win souls - don’t be afraid
Help set the captives free
Turn them from darkness to the light
For all Eternity
.
No one comes except through Him
To enter Heaven’s gates
And follow Him in truth and love
To win against the hate
.
For God so loved the world He gave
His one and only son
So we could rule and reign with Him
When life on earth is done
.
Rise up and celebrate today
And praise our risen King
He’ll come back soon to rule the world
So let your praises ring
.
