An Easter Prayer

Lord, today as I cut the tags from my brand new dress,
Let me remember you were stripped more or less.
As I put on my hat that I just bought too,
Let me remember the crown of thorns they put on you.

Lord, as I put an earring on each ear,
Let me remember all the mocking you had to hear.
As I put on my best shoes to walk out my door,
Let me remember who your final steps were for.

Lord, as I struggle to make it to church for just an hour,
Let me remember how you gave up all glory and power.
As I think of getting home to egg hunts and cooking,
Let me remember as you hung, up to heaven you were looking.

Lord, on this happy day we call an Easter holiday,
Let me remember to take the time to pray.
As I think of you hanging on that tree,
Let me remember to say Father forgive me.

For you asked the Father to forgive those who did this to you,
A thousand angels you could have called to your rescue.
Let me remember you chose to hang on that cross for me.
You hanging on that cross forever let me see.

C ruelty abounded that day long ago.

R eality fulfilled prophecy as your blood began to flow..

U nderneath a sky, that blackened about noon that day,

C hrist, you hanging high on that tree, had nothing to say.

I n all your pain and suffering you hung there ever brave.

F or you knew all of humanity you had to save.

I n your final moments you called to God above,

E nduring all this agony was the ultimate act of love.

D eclaring it is finished, you let your spirit soar,
    You fulfilled every prophecy spoken long before.

He Is Risen

H eaviness filled Mary Magdalene's heart
    early that morn,

E very good thing, seemingly, from
    her life had been torn.

I nside the tomb lay linen of white,

S he couldn't understand, her Lord's body
    was nowhere in sight.

R ightly so, she was very sad and confused,

I nside once lay Jesus' body, beaten and bruised.

S uddenly angels appeared where the body once
    lay at the foot and the head,

E xalt the name of your Lord Jesus, He isn't dead!

N ow appeared Jesus and asked,
    "Mary what are you weeping for?".
    Go tell all, I have risen with
    my Father, to live forever more.
