THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE!

I wrote this poem thinking about my mom after she died.  I was sad and missed her but I could still rejoice knowing that I would see her again one day. Praise God for His great salvation!

THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE!

Dear loved ones gone, no longer here,

Feeling still, our hearts the pain,

But in this truth we do rejoice,

We will see them once again!

*

Christ is risen, Christ is risen,

And the dead in Christ shall rise,

Christ is risen, Hallelujah,

Yes, the dead in Christ shall rise!

*

What joy to know the dead shall rise,

Jesus took from death it’s sting,

We sorrow not as others do,

Joyous victory we sing!

*

Christ is risen, Christ is risen,

And the dead in Christ shall rise,

Christ is risen, Hallelujah,

Yes, the dead in Christ shall rise!
