Easter Poem


Upon the cross, a man was nailed,
Two thousand years ago;
A sinless soul, he took our sins,
And shed his blood all, oh!

He suffered in so many ways,
Before his death on cross;
God’ love for man was thus displayed,
As Christ became the Boss.

God’s love took flesh on Christmas Day
And died like you and me;
He sacrificed His precious life,
And paid a ransom free.

Third day, he rose and showed the world,
His power over death;
Death could not hold him in the tomb,
As mighty turned his birth.

If not for Easter, Christ wouldn’t be
The Lamb of God that’s slain;
His resurrection proved the point –
He was life, truth and lane.

Christ won a victory over death
And satan, devils, hell;
All Christians too can be like him,
In after-life, and well.

The Saviour saved mankind from rod,
And brought heaven so near;
All penitent can reach the Lord
With faith renewed sans fear.

Christ showed the way that pure of heart
Can rise alive from graves;
He proved to be the Son of God,
All souls, he surely saves!

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
