My Journey to God

It is Easter Once Again

It is Easter Once Again
This is the joyous time of year
When new life begins anew
A resurgence of high hope
Faith in humankind is once again restored

It is Easter Once Again
Jesus rising from the tomb
Like a flower bursting from the soil
Hope is enriched by the immortal spring
Spring once again regains its fairest bloom

It is Easter Once Again
When Jesus’ sacrifice for us becomes clear
For our sins he died but not in vain
Though it happened so very long ago
It is still true today and for that we rejoice and sing

It is Easter Once Again
We rejoice and sing as the stone is rolled away
The empty tomb a clear sign that Jesus is risen
Jesus died giving up his life to save our souls
He paid for our sins so that we might be set free

It is Easter Once Again
It was at Easter that Jesus’ earthly mission was fulfilled
It is at Easter that we remember his awesome gift
By his death on the cross Jesus showed us how to live
That our lives be always lived in imitation of him.
