On this day of dormancy
Quiet lay the tomb
All seemed truly lost
And all too very soon
But dead is not full done
And buried is not through
What seems to be an end
Will be the start of something new
It is the truth of God alive
That death has lost its sting
But still there will be days like this
Gut-wrenching loss a thing
So know this day of in-between
Is as needed as tomorrow
For resurrection Sunday joy
Requires this day’s sorrow
We need not fool ourselves
And think this day is moot
For death will sling more arrows
And sadness will take root
But in the mourning of our loss
We look with faithful eyes
For from the dormant quiet tomb
Salvation will arise
