What He Had Said

It was the first of the week,
So early in the morn;
They arrived with spices,
The body to adorn;
But when they reached there,
They received quite a scare,
King Jesus they no longer found-
Gleaming men did they see as they bowed to the ground;
Why was the living sought among the dead?
Then reminded they them of,
What He had said;
The Son must be given unto men,
And for those and all men He must die for the sin;
This He had said,
Was so that we may be forgiven;
With an empty tomb and a stone rolled away,
No body was there within;
For what He had said was on that third day,
That He would raise up again.

Very Nice! Think if it was broke up, it would read better, but that's just me. Wonderful thoughts and words!

I tend to agree. With matched verse it is important to watch measure and set up in stanzas. Nice meaning, with very little work this could be a winner.

a very nice poetic telling of the account!

You did a very good job telling the resurrection story in verse - not an easy thing. I agree with the other comments about breaking the poem up in stanzas for better flow. Also, I think you kind of lost your rhyme scheme - were you working toward a rhyme scheme, or free verse? - you set up a nice scheme in the first nine lines, but after that it kind of fell apart.
