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
