After the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, all of India was in deep mourning. Three days later, Mrs. Naidu, one of India’s greatest poets, wrote the wrenching lines:
“O Bapu, O little Father, come back.
We’re orphaned without you. We’re lost without you.
Come back and lead us. We need you.”
This was an eloquent plea, but there was no answer. Praise be to God that we do not need to cry, “O Jesus, come back!” He has come back and is alive. He is at work in His world. We are Easter people, the sons and daughters of the resurrected Christ! (David Larsen)
