Happy Easter! / He Wouldn't Stay Dead!

He is alive! He is risen indeed! Because he lives, we lives! What a Savior! I pray that you have a great day as we think His Resurrection!
This is a poem that I am reposting from Bro. Davy Bogg's blog, The Mile Markers-Boggs Blogs. The blog is listed under our Soul-Winning Friends. He preaches and sings across the country along with his wife,Sis. Kelly and daughter, Sis. Odie. This family is an inspiration to all that hear them. This poem was written a Baptist minister named Willard G. Thomas from Georgia. Be blessed by it!

He Wouldn't Stay Dead

by:Willard G. Thomas

They laid His body in Joseph's new tomb
And filled His disciples with sorrow and gloom
They did not remember what He had said
That He would die, but He wouldn't stay dead

Mary came at the break of day
And found the stone was rolled away
She saw an angel and in terror fled
And told His disciples that He didn't stay dead

In that cold dark tomb He would not stay
He conquered death and walked away
And now that old grave has lost it's fear and dread
He lives again! He wouldn't stay dead

Full atonement and pardon were made
And forever the sin debt was marked fully paid
The price was His blood as it flowed crimson red
And I'm thankful today that He didn't stay dead!

Let's go to our churches and cry aloud
Let's go to the marketplace and talk to the crowd
Let's go to the mission fields that lie up ahead
And tell the whole world that He didn't stay dead!

Because if Jesus Christ had only died
Then the gulf between us and God would still be wide
But thank God He did what He said
He got up out of the ground, He couldn't stay dead!
