The pain was stifling
The sorrow unbearable
Food had lost its flavor
Laughter its meaning
No more reason for living
Hope had been extinguished
Bright light had been swallowed by all-consuming darkness
Life had been extinguished by death
The Master was no more.
He saved me from my demons.
I washed his feet with my tears
He washed my soul with His love
My alabaster box I broke
He broke my box of shame
I could sing
And my soul was no longer lame
But all that is gone
My friend is now more
Three days later to the tomb I went
And empty it I met.
His body stolen?!
My gut wrenched in pain
In confusion I wandered yet again
Till He met me and saved me yet again.
The darkness has turned to eternal light
Jesus called the Christ is no longer in the grave.
Dark to light! He is risen!!
