You have risen

John 20 (NIV)
15 He asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?
Who is it you are looking for?”

Yes Jesus
You have risen
from the tomb
You are not there
and I did not notice
Too long I have
waited here
in the dark
too afraid to move

But then
You came to me
Scarred hands reaching out
“I am not there,
I have risen”
Free at last from
my guilt
my shame
I can now be led
from death into life
