What Is Easter About - Poem by margaret haig

What is Easter all about, you may want to ask me,
So I thought about it, and here it is, Jesus died at Calvary;
Jesus died in our place, so that we could be free,
All we need to do is ask forgiveness, and we'll live eternally.

What is Easter all about? Not about rabbits with a cute tail,
It's not about chocolates or chickens, that's a false tale;
But a message of the greatest love, that God has for us,
That Christ came to be our Saviour, dying without fuss.

What is Easter, We could use the hot cross bun as a story,
The hot could be. In memory Jesus went to hell for you and me;
The bread. Is the reminder Jesus was the bread of life,
Also His Body was broken, beside two thieves who were in strife.

So what is Easter, it's not chocolates but the egg is like the stone,
Which rolled away and the empty tomb, the angels were left alone;
Jesus rose up from hell and death, His resurrection was victoriously,
Jesus did this for all, so all men can be from sin set free.
