The Easter Story

Here’s a story I think you should know,
It happened a long, long time ago.

So relax your mind and picture this
A rocky road lined with a joyful crowd
Shouting hosanna to the son of God.

He rode on a donkey surrounded by those
Excited to be near the King of the Jews.

They threw their cloaks and branches from trees,
They screamed ‘til their voices were merely squeaks.
They entered Jerusalem with a triumphant shout
Hosanna, blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!

Now picture this a few days later, another procession
But the mood’s now somber as they followed the Savior
To a place called Golgotha

They saw Him nailed to a wooden cross
Between two thieves one who mocked and scoffed,
You saved others now save yourself.

On that wooden cross on Golgotha’s hill,
My Lord died for your sins and mine.

But hey now, let’s not be sad
Three days later He defeated death
An empty tomb stands witness to this

Two angels stood guard at the tomb on that day
And said, “Jesus of Nazareth is not here, He’s risen today!”

Not long after that the saga continued,
Jesus ascended to heaven where He sits at the right of God’s throne

But wait a minute now, the story hasn’t ended
Jesus is in heaven now but He’s coming back again
The question is, are you ready for the big event?

Happy Easter!

(I wrote this poem over ten years ago.)
