Monday Memories: Victorious Savior

This Christian poem was originally published in November, 2019.  The verses recount the final minutes of Jesus Christ’s earthly life at Calvary.

A few believers stand in fear

God’s only Son dies a cruel way

Sorrow fills hearts so near

What will we now do and say?


Hope dies on a barren hill

Spotlighting a bloody cross

What happens—can’t be God’s will

Witnessing a life, now lost


Darkness fills a burial room

Feeling cold and forlorn

Sitting as an empty tomb

From here, hope is reborn


The sun rises on Easter morn

God’s Son fulfills His promise

Glorious Resurrection sets the norm

Even for a single, doubting Thomas


The greatest story ever told

We drop to a knee and pray

God’s action, never so bold

Victorious Christ, the final say
