empty gown lies limp on the chair,
and discarded no longer to be worn in loving care.
is the skin so soft on the silk,
from the warm touch left like a broken flower
soon will wilt?
by the sun its colors fade,
dust and steps of the spider sparkle from where it was laid.
from an outstretched hand life comes forth,
in an instant death is thrown off and replaced
a new life’s source.
resurrection from the dead so simple?
life once again renew an empty and vacant temple?
Christ changed His earthly gown for a robe of glory,
flesh to immortality He rewrote death’s story.
lifeless will all be changed in a moment,
hand of Jesus will present love to where
was once only torment.
new is put on from what Jesus has shed,
life is given to those that once were dead.
more emptiness, no more lifelessness,
turns all our death, all our shame
new is put on in Christ Jesus,
is restored and eternity gained
all of us.
Jesus turn death into a living crown,
a royal robe in Him
be fashioned from this lifeless gown.
is the empty gown that laid so lifeless on the chair?
on as a royal robe when Jesus takes all the sin we bare.
A Royal Robe by Ronhales Revelation 19:13
