"He is Risen" by Maria Evelyn Quilla Soleta


He is Risen

by Maria Evelyn Quilla Soleta


Come one, come all! See the risen Savior without His crown of thorns!

Three days before He was nailed on the cross for sins not His own.

Stripped and beaten. Pained.

In agony, He sipped from the bitter cup

While His enemies mocked and scorned.

Finally, He gave up the ghost

And the whole world mourned.


Come one, come all! See the risen Savior without His crown of thorns!

The repentant hearts saw His linen gown all tattered and torn.

He bled, died, was kept in a tomb

Without a name, no flowers,

Gated with a stone.

Three days after

Was exalted to a throne!


Come one, come all! See the risen Savior without His crown of thorns!

The despising and cruel sins of all He willingly carried and borne

Yet He promised,


And if we accept,

We will be taken Home

To rejoice with Him in happy

Reunion!
