Just Before Dawn
Thomas E. Kittrell
October 14, 2006 (revised 1-16-09)


Just before dawn
Mary Magdalene was awake from her sleep
Busily preparing spices for her Lord in the grave
Remembrance of recent events making her weep

Just before dawn
Her master was lying in a grave out there
He had died a cruel death, hung on a cross
Sobbing quietly, she stepped into the morning air

Just before dawn
Eleven disciples restlessly tossed and turned
The one they had followed had been killed
Sorrow and anguish in their hearts still burned

Just before dawn
The high priest lay sleeping in his bed
Confident things would continue as before
This man Jesus was in his grave, now dead

Just before dawn
Earth’s citizens not stirring, all was quiet
Roman soldiers were at their post, alert
They had been there throughout the night

Just before dawn
An angel came down from the skies
Smiling, he rolled away the stone
Proving from the grave Jesus did arise

© 2006 Thomas E. Kittrell

Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning,
they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared,
and certain others with them.
And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. (Luke 24:1-2)


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I really enjoyed reading this. I loved the concept of seeing what each person was doing, just before dawn on that day. Beautifully conveyed your thoughts and ideas.

'JUST BEFORE DAWN'! Thank God for the NEW DAWN God promises us in Christ. Indeed weeping may tarry all night but it must terminate before dawn, it shall not spill over but must give way for the JOY of a new day which God is bringing. This poem reminds me again that sorrow, pain and challenges of life have expiry dates! Thank you for sharing. God bless you. Ezekiel

I so appreciate your faith and friendship as we continue to put into words the love we share in God and the salvation available through the selfless sacrifice of His Son. Happy Easter - today and everyday until He comes with the clouds to bring us HOME!
