The Disciples’ Easter Weekend

(Friday Night)
We thought He was the Messiah
The true and only one.
We thought he would restore us.
We thought he was God's son.
But now he's dead and in the tomb.
We don't know what to do.
He said "I will not leave you."
But we're scared, through and through.
(Saturday)
Years ago we left families
And followed, just like he said.
But then they nailed him to the cross.
Our hopes and dreams are dead.
Should we run or should we hide?
What is left for us here?
A week ago it was different.
I can still hear the crowd's cheers.
(Early Sunday Morning)
Hey! He's not in the tomb!
Mary just brought us the word.
She says he's back from the dead.
It's the best news I've ever heard.
Can't wait to see him for myself.
It's almost too good to be true.
Maybe he'll heal the sick and teach
Just like he used to do.

(Later Sunday?)
Jesus came into the room.
There's no doubt about it.
Everyone needs to know.
Let's all go out and shout it.
He is alive. He is alive.
You better believe it, friend.
He is all that he promised.
I'll never doubt again.
