break open the tomb

break open the tomb

Lord of Easter’s Promise,

I live in faith of the Resurrection,

but such is the nature of my faith

that so much of me remains entombed.

Break open the tomb.

Where I’ve buried my compassion, break open the tomb.

Where I’ve buried my sense of mercy, break open the tomb.

Where I’ve buried my humility, break open the tomb.

Where I’ve buried my humanity, break open the tomb.

Where I’ve buried my love for my Heavenly Father, break open the tomb.

Where I’ve buried my sense of joy, break open the tomb.

Where I’ve buried my willingness to forgive, break open the tomb.

Lord, in you I’ve found a Savior no grave can withstand.

Help me to roll away this stone

And find the miracle of new life

That I may live more fully in your saving grace.

Amen
