Easter Poem

On the cross that Good Friday You suffered and bled

To save us from sin you were sent

We can never imagine just what You went through

A painful and heart-breaking end

Those harrowing moments when nailed to the cross

The words “It is finished” You said

A human life over, no joy to be found

Your days had now come to an end.

Then on Easter Sunday the happiest day

The joyful cries of “He’s Alive!”

All mourning was over, all sorrow had gone

Back into this world You arrived

We thank You for all that You gave up for us

For saving us all from our sins

We bow down to You and praise Your holy name

Our Jesus, Our Saviour, Our King
