 Tell Them 
~Edwin Gately 

Breaking through the power of darkness
bursting from the stifling tomb
he slipped into the graveyard garden
to smell the blossomed air. 

Tell them, Mary, Jesus said, 
that I have journeyed far
into the darkest deeps I’ve been 
in nights without a star. 

Tell them, Mary, Jesus said, 
that fear will flee my light
that though the ground will tremble
and despair will stalk the earth
I hold them firmly by the hand
through terror to new birth. 

Tell them, Mary, Jesus said, 
the globe and all that’s made
is clasped to God’s great bosom
they must not be afraid
for though they fall and die, he said, 
and the black earth wrap them tight
they will know the warmth 
of God’s healing hands
in the early morning light. 

Tell them, Mary, Jesu said, 
smelling the blossomed air, 
tell my people to rise with 
to help the Earth’s despair.
