Redemption Set Free


A cry was heard and pierced the heavens

Hope and faith danced for glee.

Promise and purpose rejoice in their fulfillment

As heaven eagerly awaited the return of its Son.


All of nature responded to the moment.

The earth shook and the mountains trembled.

The winds blew the clouds into a frenzy,

And the trees bowed down before their Creator.


The temple foundation rocked,

And that which held man

From seeing the face of God

Was rent in two from top to bottom.


Redemption burst forth from its confines

As it heard the sound of the cry

Which held it captive for so long,



Time could not contain it for the cry shall continue

Throughout the universe until the day

It is joined by the sound of the trump of God:

And the dead in Christ shall rise first:


Then we which are alive and remain

Shall be caught up together with

Them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:

And so shall we ever be with the Lord.


As the cry fades away,

It is replaced by the heavenly choir

And the angels singing, “Amen and Halleluiah”

And this cry shall never cease.


“Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.”  Matthew 27:50 (KJV)

“When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished:  and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.”  John 19:30 (KJV)
