Of First Importance (Easter Sunday)

Of first importance: Life, hallelujah!
Life beyond understanding,
life renewed despite death,
life growing and changing,
life outside of time & flesh,
life created in blessing — hallelujah!

Of first importance: Grace, hallelujah!
Grace unhindered by guilt,
grace multiplying with love,
grace to comfort our hearts,
grace with partiality to joy,
grace upon grace upon grace — hallelujah!

Of first importance: Witness, hallelujah!
Witness unafraid to see death,
witness welcoming a stranger,
witness in a name and a face,
witness remaining til the end,
witness telling a new story before it unfolds — hallelujah!
