When God made man so long ago In yonder garden fair Gave just one rule for man to keep Twas more than man could bear Man ate the fruit forbidden there And death the price to pay The curse of sin upon the race There was no other way But Jesus came to earth one day And died upon the tree Took on himself the Sin of man To set the captive free They buried him in borrowed tomb They wrapped him in grave clothes But praise His name the Holy son From that old tomb arose Death could not hold the son of God He tore its bonds away The first fruit of the grave of sin Was Jesus there that day The mighty son ascended back To Heaven whence he came The promise is to resurect Believers in His name Yes he arose and and we shall rise From graves wherever they may be Or if alive when Jesus comes From death forever free

Hi, Justin... a blessing to read. I haven't been a stranger, just checking in on the new poets from my phone. You've been on my mind. But, I don't like commenting my favorite poets from my phone. Ha, but you twisted my arm this morning, when id seen your comment. Thanks for guiding me this way. Easter, and the promise Jesus will rise again is well versed in your write. A mighty poem, thank you for the awesome reminder. Linda
