Sorrows Turned to Joy

by A.S. Chuba

For all the love you gave us-we thank you.
For saying “Fiat” to the angel’s word.
The hardness of this task, I think you knew,
But by his Providence, you were assured.

The spears and sorrows that you, willing, bore:
You watched your only Son upon the cross.
Then welcomed us, stray children, to your door.
We sorrowfully mourned your greatest loss.
You waited those three days in agony.
You weren’t sure of what would happen next.
Then He rose up and set us, joyful, free,
Flew up to heaven, leading us to rest.

And we remembered prophesies foretold:
The Resurrection of the Perfect Word.
