The Easter Song

This poem was written for Poetic Asides on April 13, 20018. We were to write a poem inspired by a song. The Easter Song is one of my favorites. Even thought it was Passover when I originally wrote it, it is an Easter poem.

The Easter Song

“Hear the bells ringing, they’re singing you can be born again.
Hear the bells ringing, they’re singing ‘Christ is risen from the dead.’…”

Victory.
Unbounded joy.

At this Passover time
I think of my Passover lamb.
His shed blood was sprinkled
on the doorposts of my heart.

The Lord has promised
He will pass over me
and all who trust in Jesus,
saving us from spiritual death.

Jesus alone could raise
Himself,
Lazarus,
Jairus’ daughter,
the widow’s son,
and one day, me.

No wonder my heart sings
when I think of this song.
“Hear the bells ringing;
I’m singing…”
