Because of Him
Because of Him the grass grows green
And the sparrows sing their songs
The sunshine brings warmth to all the land
As the Easter season comes along.
Because of Him, a child's birth
Is celebrated, sacred, and blessed
An eight year-old child submersed in water
Cleansed and perfect, at their best.
Because of Him we can try again
Through prayer, we can be redeemed.
His gentle hands cleaning the apostles' feet
On His hands and knees, he scrubbed and cleaned.
Because of Him we have an example
And a path to follow every day of our lives
Where, if we follow the straight and narrow
With our parents, children, husbands, and wives,
We know that we'll reach His kingdom
Where He will greet us with arms outstretched
Call us by name, and welcome us home,
The kind lines on his face so delicately etched.
Because of Him, His sacrifice,
and the wounds that pierce His side,
Because of Him we can be whole again
Because he suffered, bled, and died.
Because of Him the sun on that Easter morn
Shined so perfectly on an empty tomb
Mary cried and wept, while He
Sought to ease her troubled gloom.
He lives today, He rose again
We will testify in every hymn
For today we rejoice, and celebrate
We have everything because of Him.
Sorry it's so delayed, but I'd forgotten to post this in time. This is my Easter poem
for the year. Enjoy :) It was inspired by a large-scale campaign by my church titled
"Because of Him"
