low saturday meditatio

low saturday meditatio













crossing the great divide -

there you lie in a borrowed grave
your embalmed body bereft of breath,
you claim you crossed the great divide
that spans between life and death.

how could you cross that divide
that cuts the living from the dead?
when you yourself are sleeping in limbo
not a step you could tread?

the ancients tell us that on this day
you descended into the dungeons of hell,
to set at liberty the hidden captives
the gospel proclaimed, bidding all's well.

even in death you continued to conquer
trampling on the devil, sin and death.
because you crossed the great divide
new life and hope you could bequeath.

crossing the great divide -
