A poem for Easter

And here is a George Herbert poem for your Easter meditation entitled Easter.

Note what Herbert does with the grisly image of Christ’s sinews stretched upon the wooden Cross, transposing that Good Friday horror into the joy of Easter morning.

"My identity is founded in who I am in Christ"
"To you, O Lord, I will make music"
The Resurrection as the Christian word for defiance
"Is God Dead?" 50 years--and 439 years--later
