Easter…

A time of reflection and renewal

An adamant and firm refusal

To let sadness rule my day

As I look to God, I will find a way

To be happy and release the grief

To find blessed love and relief

 

God who gave his only son

Grieved on a Friday, withheld the sun

The rain His tears upon the earth

On Sunday morn, risen in new birth

His Son ascended to be with His Father

We were given eternal life and forgiveness

So there is no more grief and sadness

All souls dwell in the glory of the Lord

I rejoice in this Easter morn…
