Called to March

From Luke 23:44-46:  “It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, while the sun’s light failed, and the curtain of the temple was torn in two.  Then Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, ‘Father, into Your hands I commend My spirit.’  Having said this, He breathed his last.”

Darkness surrounds solemn ground

Bloodied cross witnesses death

Son of Man’s reign ending now

His journey, now out of breath


Heartless enemy praises

Night sky covers grave of death

Disciples fleeing . . . hiding

But grace, never out of breath


Son of God shall rise, be seen

Morning light erases death

Praising over vacant tomb

Alleluia fills each breath


Called to march with our Savior

Love forever conquers death

Crown beloved Christ, our King

Mercy’s everlasting breath

From Matthew 28:5-6:  “But the angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified.  He is not here, for He has been raised, as He said.  Come, see the place where He lay.'”
