No Body There

Remember they came to the garden tomb

In the darkness before the mist.

Ah! The stone by then had been rolled away

What was the meaning of this

One of the white clad angels spoke

The Father has raised Him out.

He is not here but living

You do not need to doubt.

While they paused in wonderment

They confirmed that yes, He was dead.

And it’s true that they had laid

Him there But He is risen as He said.

I’m so glad the stone was rolled away

And they found no body there.

The message of the risen Lord

Is for everybody everywhere.

It proves what He so often taught

“I must die that you might live.”

God the Son hung on the cross

Because He chose His life to give.
