THE RESURRECTION!!!

THE STORY OF A SIMPLE FISHERMAN . . .

ALL IS COUNTED AS LOST
THE DEATH FINAL
THE BLOOD STILL STAINS WHERE THE BODY LAID
SILENT - DORMANT - STILL
IT'S OVER
ISN'T IT?

THE HOPES ARE GONE
THERE WILL BE NO MORE TOUCHES
FROM HEAVEN TO EARTH
GOD TRIED - HE SENT THE BEST
BUT WE KILLED HIM
TORTURED HIM, ABUSED HIM, RIDICULED HIM
AND HUNG HIM AS A CRIMINAL
IT'S OVER
ISN'T IT?

WHAT DID HE MEAN
WHEN HE SAID HE WOULD REBUILD THE TEMPLE?
I STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND MOST OF WHAT HE SAID
BUT I KNOW HE WAS FROM GOD!
I KNOW HE WAS GOD'S SON!
I KNOW HE WAS OUR SAVIOR!
WHAT WENT WRONG?
WHY DID HE FAIL?
WE HAD SUCH HIGH HOPES
WE GAVE UP ALL TO FOLLOW HIM
WHAT IS LEFT?

HOW DO WE PIECE OUR LIVES
BACK TOGETHER WITHOUT HIM?
WHY CAN'T I FORGET HIM - HIS FACE - HIS EYES?
EVEN HIS REBUKES TO US WERE DONE IN LOVE
ALMOST AS A FATHER TO A CHILD
I WISH I STILL HAD HOPE
I WANT TO GO ON . . . . . BUT I HAVE NO HOPE
HE IS DEAD
NO MORE POWER TO HEAL
NO MORE WORDS OF TRUTH SPOKEN
NO MORE -- NO MORE -- NO MORE!
~ ~

HE AROSE?
WHAT DO YOU MEAN?
ARE YOU CRAZY?
HOW COULD HE
ARISE FROM THE DEAD?
HOW COULD HE
COME BACK TO LIFE?
DON'T FOOL ME
I'M STILL TRYING TO
GET ALL THE REST OUT OF MY HEAD!
I NEED TO GET BACK TO REAL LIFE!
I'VE BEEN GONE FROM THE FISHING NETS
TOO LONG!!!

~~~

HE DID RISE!
HE IS GOD!
FORGIVE ME - PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
I UNDERSTAND NOW!
HE IS THE TEMPLE TO BE REBUILT ~TO BE RAISED!
HE IS GOD!
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING!
DEATH TO LIFE!
HE HAS POWER OVER DEATH!
THE CROSS WAS NOT THE END
IT WAS THE BEGINNING FOR ALL OF US!!!
I BELIEVE!!!
OH GOD - I BELIEVE!!!

TAKE ME TO THE CROSS
I WANT TO KNOW
THE POWER
OF
THE RESURRECTION!!!

I WANT TO BE TOUCHED
BY THE FATHER
AND RAISED TO
NEW LIFE!!!

I WANT THE STONE ROLLED AWAY
FROM IN FRONT OF THE TOMB
OF MY LIFE!!!
I WANT TO WALK OUT
NEW!!!

~~~
THE RESURRECTION!
YES, THE RESURRECTION!

*
IT'S FOR ALL OF US TO EXPERIENCE!
JESUS SHOWED US THE WAY
THE PATH TO TAKE!
