Let Me Rise

Let Me Rise

‘Let me rise
in your heart.
Lay there and let me rise.
The door to the tomb is open.
The door to your heart.
Don't be afraid of the silence.
It’s as silent as the tomb
on Easter morning.
Wide open.

‘The sun shines on the place
where I lay.
The silence of Sunday morning,
only broken by bird song.
It’s the silence that speaks
to your heart now.
Lay there and look at the sky.
The clouds that point the way,
to me.

‘You now live in the place,
between the cross and
the resurrection.
But look closely.
The door has been opened,
to your heart.
And the Son shines in.
Follow the light to me.
I am the way.’

‘But for you who revere my name
the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays.’
     Malachi 4:2 (NIV)
