The Resurrection | Joan Brand-Landkamer, artist

THE RESURRECTION OF THE LORD

Through the curtainless window, for a while now,
I have seen a little star shining at me.
I do not sleep.
But the night between Holy Saturday and Easter
was not made for sleeping.
O happy night, you alone know
the hour when Jesus was raised!
You women, what are you looking for in the tomb?
Jesus lives, he is no longer here!
And my soul, too, tears itself from the tomb
with a wild laugh!
I, too, have conquered death
and I believe in Jesus, my Savior!
