Will One Resurrection Do?
Will one resurrection do?
(Count Lazarus, that makes two.)
Count up all the reasons why
The flavor goes when we die
To gain some glory and some spice
Attained only in the afterlife.
Or: Eat this bread, drink this wine,
Steel the nerves, the body find
In plates epicurean
In places still human
Til this hymn we fully sing
When Easter bells for him we ring.
