Easter Morning celebrations

Updated on February 22, 2013

Easter comes around each year
Children's hearts are filled with glee
In hopeful anticipation
Of treats the bunny's left to see

They'll hunt eggs then eat some candy
Maybe an Easter egg or two
It's a day of celebration
what else are kids to do?

Oh some will dress for Easter Sunday
And off to worship they will go
But the true meaning of Easter
Many of them have yet to know

It's not all about the candy
Although it really does taste good
And it's not all about the dinner
And the delicious well made food.

It's not about the family
Uncle Mike and Sister Sue
It's not about the relatives
Although I'm sure they'll be there too...

It's about a risen Savior
Fulfilling prophecies of old
Bringing hope and promise
To a troubled angry world

A challenge to believers
A test of faith in what's to come
The promises of a future
When life on Earth is done

Of hopeful reuniting
With friends and family gone before
A light of transformation
Of forgiveness, love and more

It's of a better place that's coming
Free of this world's stress and strife
Of reconciliation
a promise made from sacrifice

So after jelly beans are eaten
And the food's all put away
When you've hugged and kissed the relatives
And they've all left for the day

Gather close your family
You children and your wife
And give thanks to the Savior
whom too and for us gave his life
