Taken from the book of Mark chapters 15-16.
Sweet Jesus He hangs there nailed to the cross. He willing gave up His life for us all.
He hangs ‘tween two robbers two sinners two low lives. They are quite simply an example of me.
Bitter wine he refuses. They cast lots for His garments. “Come down” they say. “You can Lord you’re the King of the Jews!”
Chief priests, scribes, and others all mock Him with their words. The sixth hour is here the sixth hour has come.
Darkness ‘til the ninth hour when Jesus He cries out, “My God my God why have You forsaken me?”
Jesus uttered a loud cry and breathed His last breath. The curtain in the temple was torn it two.
From top to bottom now that is from God’s hand. The soldier said, “Truly this man was the Son of God.”
But the story of Jesus does not end in this way. You see 3 days later He was alive again!
The stone had been rolled back. Two Marys brought their spices and to their shock a young man did they see.
“Do not be alarmed ladies.” I would have been panicked but guess what, they weren’t the listened instead.
Jesus of Nazareth He is risen not here now. See the place where they laid Him it’s empty and bare.
The young man told them to tell the disciples and Peter, “He is going before you to the town Galilee.”
“There you will see Him just as He told you. They fled from the town and astonishment seized them. They said nothing to anyone because they were afraid.
He appeared to Mary, the one delivered from demons. “She went and told those who were with Him” they cried and they wept as their friend was dead now.
This woman she tells them that He was alive but believe it they did not. But He showed Himself to two more.
When they went back to tell the others they’d seen Him. They didn’t believe what those two had said.
He then appeared to eleven disciples. He came through the walls what a sight that must’ve been!
Go tell the whole world now proclaim me to creation whoever believes and is baptized is saved.
