An Easter Tenor!

An Easter Tenor!

See the Son divine hang on the Cross
See him under the harrowing pressure
See him bearing all of our sin’s dross
See him mocked and scorned in torture
See him suffering to pay the dear price
See him sacrifice his all the lost to recapture
See him hinge the prodigals for the paradise
See the divine Love offer life for redemption

Hear his finale words; “Father forgive them …”
Hear the silence while his eyes close in death
Hear the silence as his followers scatter
Hear the silence as many think it’s all over
Hear the silence as many wait in tense angst
Hear the silence while the tomb holds the hope

See the glory of the heavenly splendour awake
See the Son divine raised from death
See him the glorious over hell’s pressure
See him living beyond the grave’s sheath
See him among men the true infinite treasure
See him promise the return to the flock
See him soar to heaven in celestial grandeur
See the divine Love establish a new creation

  1. Bro. So good to know you through your profile on the blogger. I am also glad to stop by your blog "Hope for the World in Jesus" and the post on it "An Easter Tenor!". Thank you for sharing in the love the Gospel story giving Hope. I am blessed to know you and was also blessed to go through your profile knowing you in a better way as who you are in the Lord . Well let me share with you a program our church in Mumbai, India has for the young people as well as adults from the West. We encourage young people as well as adults from the West to come to Mumbai on a short / long term missions trip to work with us in the slums of Mumbai amongst poorest of poor to share the good news of Jesus Christ and to give them hope, future and life. I am in the Pastoral ministry for last 35yrs in the great city of Mumbai a city with great contrast where richest of rich and the poorest of poor live. We reach out to the poorest of poor with the love of Christ to bring healing to the broken hearted. We would love to have some young people among whom you work to come to Mumbai to work with us during their summer. Christmas vacation. My email id is: dhwankhede(at)hmail(dot)com and my name is Diwakar Wankhede. Looking forward to hear from you very soon.
