The Promise of the Empty Tomb

A beautiful poem by Chloe Axford, it is based on John 20:1-18 and the image of the empty tomb as a symbol of Jesus’ resurrection. Enjoy!

The promise of the empty tomb
Rips the rug from under your feet,
And says hold on tight
We’re going for a ride
Into the deep unknown

The promise of the empty tomb
Says the story doesn’t end the way
You think it will.
Yes, your future is set in stone,
But I carved it and it’s beautiful

The promise of the empty tomb
Says you are worth so much more
Than you think you are
You are to die for
And I did

The promise of the empty tomb
Drives nails through darkness
And says trust me
I have a plan
And it is good

The promise of the empty tomb
Rolls back the stone
Stomps on death
And says why are you crying,
Don’t you know me?

Christ has risen, truly He has risen!

Happy Easter to you and your family.
