News Defying Expectation ~ Lyrics
News defying expectation,
Mystery compounds their fear.
Hear the bombshell exclamation:
“Grave is empty – He’s not there!”
Wrestling with this information,
In bereavement’s dark despair,
Searching for an explanation:
“Where’s His body – where, O where?”
Far beyond imagination,
More than boldest thought or prayer,
Cause for joyous celebration:
“Christ is risen! He is here!”
