Awaiting the Resurrection

I walked cart-rutted roads,
carried water from the village well
and gathered heather on the hill,
bore babes in pain, 
and rocked them by candlelight.
These many years, my mortal remains 
have rested in shadows 
of the parish church, while I’ve grown 
in knowledge, grace, and faith.
Today, you say my name, 
breathe in my behalf, 
receive long awaited promises
and covenants of godliness.
Thus prepared, body and spirit
will rise in glory from the grave 
on resurrection morning.
