Interval Imposed


Tune: Melcombe

('New every morning is the love')

Matthew 27 v.57-66 parts


A waiting time, Jesus had died

Uncertainty seemed to preside

Joseph of Arimathea

Had laid Him in his own tomb, see


There witnesses, the two Marys

Saw the scene, the story agrees

Joseph at tomb door rolled great stone

Placed Jesus' body there, it known


Soldiers asked Pilate for a guard

For tomb-escape it would be hard

They said, Lest His disciples steal

Jesus away, this their appeal


Yet truth came to pass, Jesus said

Three days and I will rise from dead

We may share His resurrection

Eternal life denied to none

      This is such a beautiful Easter verse dear Orchi. The story invokes such a sense of peace, that all will be right now, a prophecy fulfilled.
