Happy Easter to All
He who had come down from heaven to earth,
He who was Lord but became man by birth,
He who triumphed over satan and death,
Has risen to life to give the world, mirth!
He who suffered for mankind’s sins on cross,
He who washed apostles’ feet, although boss,
He who performed miracles without pause,
Is back to life; He is the Lord because!
The Lamb of God took on the sins of world;
The Son of God was crowned with thorns and hurled;
His battered body bled and lay so cold;
But for his Father’s sake, he was brave, bold!
The love of God for man was truly shown;
Jesus Christ was his only son and own;
To redeem sinners, on earth, he was born;
He’ll come again with glory, one fine morn!
Light has prevailed over darkness forev’r;
The gates of hell had failed to lock this soul;
All repentant sinners can gain heaven;
The blood of Christ was ransom paid for all!
We thank you God for resurrecting Christ;
We Christians vow to be his soldiers first;
He is the water for our divine thirst;
With Christ, we’ll brave life’s storms however worst!
“Happy Easter to all! ”
