When Easter comes... so does spring,
bringing new life to the world.
The butterfly adorns the fields
gracefully moving among flowers so bold.
The beautiful flowers paint the mind
with their amazing fragrance.
As the birds prepare their nest,
they harmonize in song
celebrating joys of spring and new life.
Just as the spring rains
bring new life to trees and plants,
so did Christ's tears water our soul
giving us life through his death.
We call his act of love "Easter".
We are celebrating today, Oh Lord,
the angels rolling the stone away.
Join us as we gather to share
and give thanks for this day.
As we are caught up in well-worn traditions,
Lord, Keep them worthy,
for like the deer path through the forest,
they lead us both forward and back.
Thank you for your divine love
and may we understand anew what this day really means.
