Easter Gift

Remember Easter’s not just about bunnies
and the colored eggs they hide,

 or the pretty Easter baskets
with plenty of treats inside,


a day for families being together
with fun for each girl and boy, 


but there is a very special reason
for so much Easter joy.

Jesus, God’s son, came from Heaven
where He had lived before,
 died because of all the sin,
then rose to life once more.

That’s the reason for Easter joy,
the gift God sent from above,
the gift of life that Jesus gives
and the wonderful gift of love.
