The letters "INRI" are initials for the
Latin title that was posted over the head of Jesus Christ on the cross.
The English translation is,
"Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews."
Imagine--if you can, dear hearts--
That twas you---who went to find
An empty tomb--JESUS gone
Guard soldiers all struck blind
Imagine--hearing an angel speak--
Saying "He is risen, and is not here"!!
How happy would your heart be--
Could you retain-- that joyful tear?
Imagine--the hastening of your steps
As you rushed to share the news.
The rocky path, no longer steep
But smooth beneath your shoes
Imagine remembering the promise
GOD gives to all who believe
That His son now lives forever
And His death we need not grieve
God's promise kept in words of truth
This life is not the end.
But hope eternal is ours to claim!!
He lives!! He lives!! -- my friend
Easter joy--yet what sacrifice
That God's own son should pay the price
For love eternal---peace divine
Praise God I'm His---and He is mine
