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. Beautiful poem!

    Enjoy your day celebrating our Risen Savior!

  2. Welcome Jenny, I'm so glad that you joined us and found me on this Wonderful, Glorious Resurrection Sunday to link us with you & such beautiful inspiration.

    [I had internet problems since I returned from church until now I'm usually better than this!So I chose to visit yours first because I know that you came from Beth's when she took over for my 40 day blog abstinence and don't know me and the others do. But I hope my internet lasts for them all!]

    Such beautiful selections from beginning to the sweet end. The opening graphic of our Heavenly home, or Jesus returned home, resurrected in the Glory of His Father & the Spirit, with the reminder of the 3 crosses, i innocent, perfect sacrifice & the others guilty, representing us.
    Followed with a very inspirational poem that truly captures the essence. Then 2 SUPER videos of songs that I want to sing & shout "My Redeemer Lives" and how "Indescribable"! Finally a sweet creation, the precious bunny hopping for JOY as I shout I believe...with you and it sound like Cindy Cruse R. or is it Hillsong? I love Chris Tomlin's Indescribable and that's truly what you have blessed me with on this SUPER SUNDAY! I'm so glad that you became a part of these Super Sundays! Looking forward to seeing more of you & getting to know you! I pray that you & yours enjoyed a JOYOUS celebration of this day! He is Risen! Alleluia! Thank you for blessing me!

  3. Welcome back. I haven't been to blog world since Thursday. I take it you had a great trip. Great post. Glad to see you again.

  4. Both songs are so powerful. I never fail to be moved by either of them. :)
