Resurrection, restoration

I could not believe it Jesus,
There You were on the cross,
I was standing a distance away from You,
Too afraid to approach and so lost.

I could not believe it Jesus,
There You hung in deep pain,
As I watched You suffer and pray to the Father,
And only a few had remained.

I could not believe it Jesus,
As I saw the darkening sky,
The thunder rolled and lightning flashed,
I heard Your moans and deep cries.

I could not believe it Jesus,
As I finally watched You fade,
The King of kings, the mighty Lord,
This just could not be the way!

I could not believe it Jesus,
As I heard Your gasping last breath,
The earth was shaken, the temple torn,
I had actually witnessed your death.

Death.  Gone.
Death.  Finished.
Death.  Lost.
The End?

Today.

I cannot believe it Jesus,
Here You are standing with me,
As I kneel before You I see Your Light,
You are smiling, You live, You are free!

I do believe it Jesus,
For You have triumphed from pain,
You saw my sin, and You bore it all,
You gave up Yourself for my gain.

I do believe it Jesus,
For nothing can hold back Your love,
You made us for Heaven, to be with You.
Our Saviour, our Friend, our God.

I do believe it Jesus.
I do believe.
We believe.
In You.
