What was between the death of Jesus and his resurrection? Saturday. Here’s a poetic reflection of that silent day:
“Between the Cross and Empty Tomb”
On Saturday his body lay
Silent, still, and cold,
Entombed for one more night before
The stone began to roll.
Darkness seemed to triumph while
God the Son lay dead,
But in the morn his hands would pull
The cloth from ’round his head.
Disciples, now consumed with fear,
Did mourn their master’s death.
Yet joy would rise with Sunday’s sun
And new creation’s breath.
For one more night all hope seemed lost
As death claimed the last word,
But this second day would end with
Resurrection on the third.
