To see a brilliant light appear and angel hosts revealed?
Would you have been surprised to taste the water turned to wine,
That Jesus made to replace that which had not been as fine?
Would you have been surprised to hear the parables He taught
And realize the love He has when a lost sheep is sought?
Would you have been surprised to talk with one who had been dead,
Like Lazarus, who from the tomb, came forth as He had said?
Would you have been surprised to find the empty grave clothes there,
Where once our Master had been laid behind the stone with care?
Would you have been surprised to touch the nail prints in His hand,
Where He’d been placed upon the cross at Governor’s command?
Would you have been surprised that day, when looking to the sky,
To see the Lord’s ascension there as He arose on high?
You should not surprised to know it was for you He died,
To take upon Him all your sins and give you joy, beside.
You need not be surprised today to know He’s there with you,
To comfort, guide, and help you, too, in everything you do.
Then let your heart be glad to know He’s coming back for you,
For every promise that He made is absolutely true.
