Our Promise

Our Promise

By Roy Blizzard III ™ © 2006

On a hill across the valley,

I can still see it now,

They led my dear Lord to die.

One of three men,

He hung on a tree,

Enduring the curse of us all.

As death came so coldly,

No man could know,

That with him we would live.

They placed him inside,

Of a dark, stone tomb,

And hoped he was dead and gone.

When the stone slammed shut,

And the seal was set,

The Father was anguished by us.

After the time,

Appointed by God,

The Son shone out of the darkness.

Only one of those three,

Rose from the dead,

And strolled past that great rolling stone.

He broke forth,

Leading us home,

Now a new day has come to us all.



Roy Blizzard's New Book

The Gospel of John, An Actual Translation
The Gospel of John, An Actual Translation

Never before has this book been actually translated and never before has an attempt been made to translate it from Hebrew into English. This book does both. You will learn a host of exciting items that you would never have known had you not read this book. It will literally change your life by introducing you to a Jesus that you never knew.

      I like the view that the stone represented the stone of Law that was rolled away to give us access to our Father.

      I am a guide, a lead, a search in your rhyme.

      For I pass you a light that is the truth of time.
