Easter Christian Poems For Children

Updated on December 12, 2016

These poems are for young elementary school aged  children. They are fun, expressive and enjoyable. We have used them and so many others throughout the years. Please feel free to use them in your Easter Christian Poems for Children program.  

AN EASTER LILY

(This poem is for a small child carrying an Easter lily)


Every Easter lily *(1)

By garden *(2)

fence or wall,

Has a blessed *(3)

message

That it breathes to all. *(4)

I'll *(5 )

be an Easter lily,

A message, too, *(6 )

I'll bring;

I'll gladly *(7 )

tell that Jesus lives,

A loving reigning King!


Motions: *(1) Child looks down at the lily. *(2) Glance from side to side *

(3) Smile. *(4) Extend both hands at side. *(5) Right hand on breast.

*(6) Shake head up and down emphatically. *(7) Hand extended upward.



JESUS LIVES


"Jesus lives," the Easter bells

The tidings now proclaim,

And we will sweetly sing as well

To praise His holy name.


THE MESSAGE OF THAT GARDEN

(This poem can be recited or read by four children, giving each a paragraph. The children can all walk out together and stand side by side as each recites or reads his or her paragraph. Or one or two children can present this poem also.)


The message of that garden,

The glade so far away,

In far-off dim Judea,

Still lives this Easter day.


It whispers of the Master

Who slept within it's shade,

And tells of Easter morning

When Glory filled the glade.


O every sleeping garden

Awaits that Easter Word

And wakes to life and beauty,

To song of caroling bird.


The message of that garden

Forevermore shall ring,

For lo, it tells the mighty power

Of Christ the risen King!



THE NICEST KIND OF FLOWERS


(The child can carry a small or large bouquet behind his or her back. Make the bouquet out of smiley face cookies, suckers or cardboard faces (use your imagination).


I think the nicest kind of flowers

To have on Easter Day

Are just a big bouquet of smiles

That you can give away!

I have some here I brought for you,-

Will you have just one or two?

(Once the recital is over have the child walk to the audience and pass out a few smiley face treats to the adults in the crowd.)



JOY

(For three small children, each carries a white pasteboard heart lettered with their letter in gold)


(FIRST)

J is for the joy that rings

'Tis this the Easter season brings.


(SECOND)

O is for the others too,

Who must hear the message true.


(THIRD)

Y shall stand for you this day;

Have you sent good tidings on their way?


(ALL IN UNISON)

Each must do in truth their part

That joy shall reign in every heart.



HAPPY EASTER!
