While on the way that very day two men discussed the news
The Lord himself came near and asked them why they looked so blue.
Then one replied, in great surprise, supposing that no one
was unaware of what the leaders of the town had done.
And further how some women told about an empty tomb
And spoke of angels and of ghosts. You know, THAT can’t be true.
He called them foolish, ignorant of prophets, slow of heart.
They didn’t understand Messiah’s suff’ring, painful part.
He quoted scripture, chapter, verse, explaining as he went.
The road was long; the night came on; the lesson had to end.
