          ……’while it was yet still dark;’, Mary Madeline saw not the gardener but our Risen Lord,
          This my very favouritre verse.
          Oh that we were there,.,Oh that we were there.
          I know thiis is from a Christmas melody but I wish I could have been there with Mary to see the empty tomb and hear Him call my name as Jesus called to Mary,

          Allelulia

          To all a blessed Easter.
          Susan

          • I wrote this poem about that moment some years ago:

            Who are you Looking for?
            John 20:10-16

            “Why are you weeping?” they ask her.
            How could she not?
            He was all she had lived for: he was betrayed
            He was nailed to a cross.
            She saw him die.
            When all his disciples forsook him and fled
            She stayed,
            Ready to do what ought to be done
            For the dead.

            But now she can not: they took him away.
            She cannot repay
            The debt that she owes him
            And they have no pity:
            She turns her head and sees …

            Him.

            He asks the same question,
            But then he asks – Who
            Are you looking for?

            Who?
            He is dead, the man that I knew.
            If you took him, then, please
            Let me know where he lies
            And I’ll go there too.

            For he might have been King, but he gave away
            His life for the poor and the blind and the stray.
            The hungry were fed and the captives set free –
            Forgiveness and freedom for people like me.
            But who has the courage to follow his way
            Now that he’s dead ?

            Then He smiled.
            “Mary,” He said.
