The Real Meaning of Easter
Easter Bunnies, cute and white,
aren't they such a precious sight?
Pretty eggs and yummy candy,
makes your Easter great and dandy
Beautiful flowers, in bouquets bright,
all this makes your heart delight.
But wait you say… something’s just not right.
Why must we drag an old rugged cross in sight?
Do we have to talk about a man beaten black and blue?
Are you sure he died for me? For you?
to talk about the nails in His hands and feet.
The Son of God with thorns for a crown,
His precious blood flowing on the ground
He gave His life for all our sins?
Come now, don’t repeat THAT again!
If this old story were really true,
if God gave His son for me and you,
Things on this earth would never be the same.
People everywhere would be filled with shame.
Running to the cross, laying down their sin,
asking for His forgiveness, asking Him to come in.
Isn't that the real reason for this beautiful day?
Remembering a Risen Savior who washed our sins away?
