He’s Risen!!

"The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that

you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here;

He has risen, just as He said." Matthew 28:5-6.

Easter’s True Meaning

.

Easter bunnies, Chocolate eggs and happy children playing
Peter Rabbit, fluffy chicks and "Happy Easter" saying
Little one’s running here and there telling each other tales
But Easter’s true meaning started out towards whip and cross and nails

He hung on a rugged cross battered, torn and bruised
A crown of thorns upon His head the soldiers were amused
Where is your God now they said their voices filled with sneering,
A spear was thrust into His side while others looked on cheering

Did you hear Him one voice said He asked we be forgiven
He called someone His Father when He looked up to the heavens
What rubbish He’s the carpenter’s son and its plain to see He’s dead
Now which of us will have His cloak but no one really cared

His followers took His body down they laid it in a tomb
With heavy hearts and crying eyes and voices filled with gloom
But Jesus had a job to do and needed these three days
To smash the enemy’s fortress claiming victory all the way

Then He took this victory over death and hell and sin
He presented it to His Father with the blood he’d wrapped it in
After this because of love He showed Himself once more
To the folks who mourned His passing when He died just days before

Though we do not see Him now in the flesh as they did then
It’s just as true our Saviour lives for us there’ll be no end
So when the Angel comes to call at the closing of lifes day
For me there’ll be no heavy heart just singing all the way

I know, I know, my Saviour lives, He’s waiting there for me
And I’ll walk and talk with Jesus right into eternity
