But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said. Come, see the place where
he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples, He has been raised from the dead, and indeed he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him. This is my message for you.”
What the angel said, what the angel said,
He’s not here and he’s not dead, O my Lord.
He’s ahead of you, he’s out ahead of you
and you’ve got some catching up to do, O my Lord.
Hope is just an idle tale to those who have no eyes to see;
No ears to hear, no voice to sing…
Fear and our astonishment at such a mystery,
impounds our hearts, shuts down our tongues, clips angel wings.
Gone to Galilee, he’s gone to Galilee,
Open your eyes and you will see my Lord.
COME THROUGH THE LOCKED DOORS OF OUR HEARTS, LORD JESUS, IN THE
POWER OF YOUR RESURRECTION. DON’T LEAVE US BEHIND-COME BACK TO
US, UNWORTHY AS WE ARE. THEN GIVE US THE COURAGE TO GO OUT
BEYOND THE CAREFULLY CONSTRUCTED BOUNDARIES OF OUR LIVES TO
WHERE YOU ALREADY ARE. AMEN.
