Three Days

My heart is broken
All is pain, and darkness.
Hope is lost
Joy is gone.
For three days I will suffer.
Then I will break through
And see the sun again
And feel the warmth of God’s love.
I know, because I have done it before.
After three days
I will rise like the phoenix.
After three days
There is only another scar.

Jesus was in the tomb.
He descended into Hell
In pain, and darkness
Far from the warmth of God’s love
For three days.

Did he know
That in three days
An angel would come?
Did he know
That for 40 days 
He would walk the earth?
Did he know
That for 2,000 years
Christians would cherish his words?
Did he know
That they would wait for his return?

I think he knew
That God is love.
I think he knew
That God is his Father.
I think he knew
That God loved him.

I don’t know if he knew
How long he would have to endure.
I don’t know if he knew
That it would be three days.
I know that I can endure –
For three days.
