The Empty Tomb

“Early, while it was yet dark,”
They went to visit the tomb.
(Would I have gone? Did I attend?)
And, once the disciples
Saw the tomb was empty,
What did they do? They went home!
Would I have merely shrugged,
As in, “Oh–He’s gone?–OK.”
Would I then turn, and go home?

The Elders cautioned Pilate,
“Make sure His tomb is secure!”
So, then, Pilate sent a few guards?
Did he fear that the dead
Would no longer be dead?
How could guards secure the world
Against a miracle?
Lord, with you, there is nothing–
Nothing that’s impossible!
