I'll Race You to the Tomb

Two days of desperation,
The darkest days that they had ever known;
The sun would not shine for them.
There in their darkened chamber
A ray of light rode in upon these words:
Our Savior is risen.

And their minds were filled with questions,
Their hearts with new found hope.
On your mark, get set, let's go
I'll race you to the tomb, I'll race you to the tomb.

Imagine being one of them,
When all your hopes were nailed upon a tree...
The death of a thousand dreams.
And deafened by your sadness
You see their lips move,
But you hardly hear their meaning:
There's reason to hope again.

And your mind is filled with questions,
Your heart with new found hope.
On your mark, get set, let's go
I'll race you to the tomb, I'll race you to the tomb.

So put an end to all of your questions,
'Cause there's hope enough for you
There at the empty tomb.
I'll race you to the tomb.

STORY BEHIND THIS SONG...

(Read John 20:1-9)
Have you ever tried to imagine yourself in the sandals of the disciples? They had placed all their hopes and dreams on this Jesus, and now He was dead (or so they thought). When Mary Magdalene reported that the tomb was empty on that first Easter morning, Peter and John took off running to investigate for themselves. When Peter arrived a little after John, who had outrun him, he saw the empty tomb and believed. Mind you, he hadn't seen Jesus yet, just the tomb. We still have an empty tomb as a guarantee for our faith. No other religious leader can offer this. That's because Jesus was no mere religious leader or prophet. He was and is the eternal Son of God--the Word made flesh!
