We stand behind a door that’s locked
Our hearts o’erwhelmed with fear
Our fate to die, like him our Lord
We feel it drawing near

Our ears incline to catch the sound
Of steps upon the stair
Our enemy with sharpened swords
We’re sure is standing there

Then suddenly the room is filled
With white and radiant light
Our Master stands before us now
An awesome, wondrous sight

“Be still, fear not,” His gentle words
He speaks as we bow low
“My peace I give to you my friends”
And joy begins to grow

His hands, his side, to us presents
The wounds He did endure
He draws us close, and asks we touch
To know Him and be sure

How could this be, that He is here?
This man that we adored
The empty tomb, it was no lie
To us He’s been restored

And yet not man, but God divine
Who else could cheat the grave?
He took our sin and shameful deeds
To us new life He gave

We stand beside an open door
A message we must bear:-
That resurrection power is ours
Our transformed lives declare

The door to God is never locked. We have no need to fear "To us new life He gave". I like your poem.

With the poetry I've read already in this week's challenge, I think FW needs to publish a book made up of these verses. This week has seen some great stuff written and this is one of the them. Good work.

Awesome. Very well written.

Wow! I sure wish I had the ability to dash something like this off at the last minute! It would take me hours--and not turn out nearly so inspired as this one. Beautiful job!
