Hope Incarnate Because...

We could not hope for better days
Or marvel at spring’s green-spun ways
Or sing in spite of sorrow’s tear
Or bear life’s care with heart of cheer
Or know beyond that which we see
Or love beyond mortality
Or forgive without grudge or strife
Or believe in more than this life
Or be set free from fear, guilt, dread
If Jesus had not risen from the dead

© Janet Martin

But now Christ has been raised from the dead...
