Light in the tomb

         

         Why do you seek the living
         among the dead? 
                 
                  —Luke 24.5

Easter God,
roll away the stone
from the tomb of my heart.

Let the morning light
of your love
shine in.

As light forgives darkness,
fills it,
transforms it,

your love forgives me,
fills me,
transforms me.

I am not among the dead—
my guilt, my shame, my fear.
You have brought me to life.

The light of your love raises me,
sets me free,
leads me out into this new day,

beloved,
living,
made new.
