Spiritual Poems

Easter Time

by Ellen Bailey

It was at Easter time
nearly two thousand years ago
That a man gave his life
to save other men's souls

For God so loved the world
He gave His only begotten Son
So that His spirit would dwell
within the hearts of everyone

It was at Easter time
that they crucified our Lord
They placed His body in a tomb
and then closed the door

After three days
from the dead He did rise
And ascended to Heaven
up in the sky

It was at Easter time
that His earthly mission was fulfilled
He showed us how we should live
and the life we should build

He paid for our sins
so that we might be set free
He did this for us
and for all the world to see

It is at Easter time
that we remember these gifts He gave
How wonderful life would be
if we recalled them everyday

Our burdens would be lighter
and our worries would be few
If the thoughts of Easter
would last the whole year through
