Sealing the Tomb by Raymond A. Foss
They thought they would stop the disciples
the tomb sealed, guarded by the soldiers
stop them from stealing the body,
false claims of prophesy fulfilled
Did they know what their scheme would mean
what they would discover,
what would be revealed in the morning?!
Another deceit exposed, the falseness of their piety
bound in the law, forgetting the love of the creator
revealed in the prophets, the story of the people
over and over throughout their story,
written and treasured still, the birth of our faith
Oh, bring on the morning!
