Happy Easter!

Easter Joy

Jesus came to earth,
To show us how to live,
How to put others first,
How to love and how to give.

Then He set about His work,
That God sent Him to do;
He took our punishment on Himself;
He made us clean and new.

He could have saved Himself,
Calling angels from above,
But He chose to pay our price for sin;
He paid it out of love.

Our Lord died on Good Friday,
But the cross did not destroy
His resurrection on Easter morn
That fills our hearts with joy.

Now we know our earthly death,
Like His, is just a rest.
We'll be forever with Him
In heaven, where life is best.

So we live our lives for Jesus,
Think of Him in all we do.
Thank you Savior; Thank you Lord.
Help us love like you!

  1. What a lovely poem! Thank you JESUS!! The ultimate price, the ultimate sacrifice! Hope you had a very blessed Easter!

  2. Beautiful poem, Mom! The significance of this day is monumental, life-changing, for all eternity. What a wonderful God we have, to send his own son, to live, die and rise again because He loves us so. I think this Easter I have a whole different perspective on the sacrifice made, the love poured out, the life given by our Messiah. Hallelujah! He is risen!
