“Let every heart be filled with joy,
A joy of thankfulness to our Savior and King!
He is victorious over sin and death.
He conquered death to give us a new life.”
“A life blossoms through His unending love.
It is for a cause and without condition
The love that brings healing and reconciliation”
“Peace that springs from his sacred heart,
A heart that bleeds for our affliction.
It is full of mercy and compassion,
A heart wounded for our sins and vainglory.”
“Rejoice! Jesus has truly risen from the dead
For us to live once again,
To live without blemish of pride,
And live a life unselfishly for others in need.” By Estela Canama
2. Three Years And Twelve Friends
“We’ve been given the greatest gift,
the most precious, wonderful promise ever made.
It’s about the resurrection.
This truth will never fade.”
“His gift is for all eternity,
Not just a moment in time.
He’s given us a mind-boggling gift.
He was innocent of His crime.’
‘Released from the burden of our sin,
The veil was torn to free.
A promise delivered as the prophecies told.
The ancient ones could see.”
“Nothing can separate,
No man-made intervention.
We are saved from our mortal sin
By the power of the resurrection.’
“He came and walked with us
With twelve friends he taught and prayed.
Three years of dedicated ministry,
In His blood, our debt is paid.”
Amen. By Raelene J. Elliss
3. Freedom In The Cross
‘There’s something that occurred
on that evening at Calvary
that created such a lavish stir
in all of history.”
“Upon that old rugged cross
our Savior bared it all
and offered himself a sacrifice
to overspread humanity’s fall.”
“The sacred blood that was spilled
wiped clean the sinner’s slate.
Christ paid the price for everyone
and carried our weight.”
“A willing heart endured the pain,
and purpose paved His way.
He opened the eyes of every man
To whom He came to save.
‘Though the tragedy of that day
will be mourned by those around,
our joy is found three days later
when He arose from the very ground.”
“And through that selfless act of love,
we were given new life in Him,
set loose from our bondages
to experience true freedom within.” By Olivia Lakis
4. The Reason We Celebrate Easter
‘We celebrate the resurrection
and hail the risen Christ.
We kneel before the rugged cross
where Jesus gave His life.”
“We lift our hands in total praise
and give thanks to God above
for the great sacrifice, He made
to declare His unfailing love.”
“If we look back to Calvary
where Jesus was crucified,
we can see His nail-pierced hands
and the wounds in His side.”
“We marvel at Christ’s suffering
and give thanks for His sacrifice
’cause it was for us that Jesus died
so we could have eternal life.”
“But God raised Jesus from the dead!
And with gratitude, we can say,
“Our sin debt has been paid in full,”
so we celebrate Resurrection Day!” By Lenora McWhorter
5. No Second Chance
“If there was no resurrection,
there would be no hope for mankind.
We would have no second chance
and no peace of mind.”
“The love of God is clearly seen
in the sacrifice of His Son,
who took our punishment and our sin
and offered redemption for everyone.”
“Had not Jesus died on the cross,
had His life not been sacrificed,
there would be no forgiveness of sin
and there would be no eternal life.”
“Jesus did no wrong and knew no sin.
But for love’s sake He died…
so our sin debt could be paid in full.
He gave Himself to be crucified.”
“The good news of salvation
comes to us by the way of the cross.
God raised up Jesus from the dead
so that no man need be lost.”
“Oh, what love the Father has for us,
shown by the gift He freely gave.
So that we could have a second chance.
God raised Jesus from the grave.” By Lenora McWhorter
“Ridiculed and mocked, nailed to a cross.
Each of his followers mourning his loss.
Set down from on high, placed in a cave.
Unmovable stone in front of his grave.
Roman soldiers guarded the solemn room,
Rejecting attempts to enter the tomb.
Entrance sealed so no one could steal
Christ’s body, which had a great appeal.
Then on the third day, Mary could not believe
Inside the cave – nobody to grieve.
On Sunday he was seen it was said.
Now God had raised His Son from the dead.” By Eric R. Harvey More By Eric R. Harvey
7. Love To The Fullest
“Love to the fullest once roamed our earth.
He arrived here by means of a heavenly birth.”
“From the very beginning most everyone knew
there was something so special this child would do.”
“As time would prevail He became a man,
teaching us love from God’s own hand.”
“Though to some He knew He would be such a dread.
They never could rest until He was dead!”
“He knew His own fate from beginning to end.
He knew and still loved His betraying friend.”
“He carried His cross using His own two feet
to die for our sins and our total defeat.”
“Why did He do it? No reason but love!
He wanted to help us to heaven above.”
“Who was this man with such merciful love?
None other than Jesus, our Savior above!” By Patricia L. Cisco
8. Happy Easter Limerick
“Easter weekend’s a time when we feast
On a turkey that’s freshly deceased
Or a slow-roasted duck
That has run out of pluck
Or a lamb that’s been recently fleeced”
“Many places are holding parades
With traffic cut off by blockades
As folks line the streets
And as cops walk the beats
Of their city and town promenades”
“Many candies and eggs will be hid
So that many a cute little kid
Can damage their teeth
And their gums underneath
In a sugary takeover bid”
“As for me, I’ll watch sports on TV
While indulging in crackers with Brie
Washing down with some suds
Such as Molsons or Buds
Then I’ll empty myself when I pee”
“So I hope you all have a good Easter
As you sit in your den on your keester
Or chill out with your chums
Or be flapping your gums
On the phone with your brother or seester” By Neil
9. Thoughts Of Easter
“I awoke before dawn this Easter morn,
Laid very still and just thought,
Not of the eggs and bunnies that Easter brings,
But of the gift of life that it brought,
I thought of that cross he carried,
That crown of thorns on his head,
The nails into his body they buried,
Betrayed by even those that he led,
Up that road to Calvary,
Totally sinless too,
Jesus paid the ultimate out of love,
He died for me, for you,
Love keeps no records of right or wrong,
Love doesn’t keep a score,
To our Father in heaven we all belong,
Just as on that day long before,
I looked in the room at my sleeping sons,
Tears slipped from my eyes,
God had done more than I could have done,
To just watch as my son suffered and died,
My Easter held such meaning then,
As I watched the dawn breaking through,
Just thinking of that day so long ago,
When God did what I could not do.” By Deborah Wininger
“When Jesus came on the scene
He came in a way that was humble
Here on earth
He never mumbled nor grumbled’
“Man shed innocent blood
When Jesus died on the cross
They thought they were above God
In the end, they found out who was boss’
‘Easter is a day set aside
For Christ death, burial, and resurrection
If in your life you’re not living right
This is the time to make corrections”
“Easter shouldn’t be celebrated
With nice clothes and beautiful hats
God’s death, burial and resurrection
Has nothing to do with that”
“Jesus bore the cross
Heading for Calvary
Through God’s love
Allowed us to be free”
“He was put in His tomb
And on the 3rd day He got out
So I could capture salvation
And for this reason I can jump and shout”
“Now when I think of Easter
I don’t think of material things
I use it as a reminder
Of the joy it brings.” By Michael A Burke Sr
11. Easter Poems For Kids
“I’m an Easter Bunny, watch me hop. (hop around)
Here are my two eats, see how they flop. (hold hands at sides of head and flop them)
Here is my cottontail, here is my nose, (wiggle hips, then point to nose.)
I’m all furry from my head to my toes. (point to head, then to toes)” By Susan M. Paprocki
“With a hip and a hop
Easter bunny won’t you stop,
At my house to hide some yummy little eggs.
Then you’ll jump out and run –
Down the street for some fun,
Zippity quick on your fuzzy, furry legs.
To hide treats for the others –
Boys and girls –even mothers,
Treats galore packed in baskets and bright bags!” By Leanne Guenther

Angels rolled the stone away
From the tomb wherein He lay!
Little children, come and sing,
Glory, glory to the King,
Christ the Lord of everything!” By Evaleen Stein
Yellow and blue.
For me and you
Are good to eat.
Pretty and funny.
But…where oh where
Is the Easter bunny?” Anonymous
“Easter bunny soft and white
Hopping quickly out of sight,
Thank you for the eggs you bring
At Easter time to welcome spring.
Yellow eggs and blue and red
In the grass and flower bed
We will hunt them everywhere
Is it really you who put them there?” Anonymous
“You are Eggstra special!
Bunnies, eggs & jellybeans,
That’s not all that Easter means.
There is another message too..
Jesus died for me and you!” Anonymous
12. Easter Poems For Church
God sent His Son to take the punishment
For all the thoughtless, sinful things we do;
Jesus gave his life because He loves us;
His love is boundless, sweet, forever true.

His resurrection proves He is our Lord.
That is why we tell you
He secured our heavenly reward!” By Joanna Fuchs

Remember God’s gift,
Remember the resurrection,
May your soul uplift.” By Bill Hoeneveld

Of Easter morn
Bring joy to thee.
ay the calm eve
Of Easter leave
A peace divine with thee.

O Christ, I live for thee!” Anonymous
“Easter lilies! Can you hear
What they whisper, low and clear?
In dewy fragrance they unfold
Their splendor sweet, their snow and gold.
Every beauty-breathing bell
News of heaven has to tell.
Listen to their mystic voice.
Hear, oh mortal, and rejoice!
Hark, their soft and heavenly chime!
Christ is risen for all time!” By Cela Thaxter
“On Easter Day the lilies bloom,
Triumphant, risen from their tomb;
Their bulbs have undergone rebirth,
Born from the silence of the earth
Symbolically, to tell all men
That Christ, the Saviour, lives again.
The angels, pure and white as they,
Have come and rolled the stone away
And with the lifting of the stone,
The shadow of the cross is gone!” By June Masters Bacher
