Matthew 28:1-10

Even Jesus needed an angel
To roll away the stone
Perhaps if not, the guards would’ve thought
He’d risen all alone.

As if he hadn’t really died
Just suffered so immensely
So bright and shining angel of the Lord
While they watched & fainted, tensely

The women watched and didn’t faint
But waited on the Lord
But there must have been a little fear
Which the angel dismissed in word

“Jesus is not here, for He is raised.”
The mighty angel said,
“Now go and tell his disciples
He’s risen from the dead!”

They turned with quick intent to run
With such joy in their eyes
But dropped to worship instantly
When Jesus appeared, “Surprise!”

Such a childlike Savior, appearing
While the angel was on a mission
And telling them to hurry back
Maybe He wanted to go fishing…
