Anastasia

I came across a word today

Anastasia

Luke chapter four

Something to amaze you

It refers to Peter’s mother-in-law

She in bed with fever

The Lord touched and cured her

Caused the ill to leave her

 

Anastasia means resurrection

The ill lady got up

Restored to health

She waited on them all

And there I saw the other word

Diakonia – service

The gospel read in Greek

Very glad I learned it

 

Then I thought of Russia

And the Romanovs

All killed in that cellar

Machine-gunned got rid of

Is this meant to improve the world?

Destroy the enemy

It’s the healing art and service

Where we’ll find our remedy
