Easter - Poem by Edith Elhart Fairbanks

Look deep in the hart of a lily,
Down the long, long corridor of time
And see the cross of our Savior
And the light hovering round it sublime!
Don't stop from your gazing, or falter,
For seeing that cross in its light—
A name can be seen when you find yourself at its foot
And you want to take flight—
For the name written there is your name and mine! Then as you gaze it fades slowly away—
And the KING OF THE JEWS is written there
And you know as you look that HIS promise
HE kept
And safe and secure you can be— For the empty tomb proves that Christ Jesus arose
And death no more has its sting—
And we who believe will like HIM someday be
And live on eternally!
