Easter Verses

“ Christ the Lord is risen to-day,
Sons of men and angels say,
Raise your joys and triumphs high,
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.”
~ Charles Wesley

“ I think of the garden after the rain;
And hope to my heart comes singing,
At morn the cherry-blooms will be white,
And the Easter bells be ringing!”
~ Edna Dean Proctor, “Easter Bells”

“ Tomb, thou shalt not hold Him longer;
Death is strong, but Life is stronger;
Stronger than the dark, the light;
Stronger than the wrong, the right.”
~ Phillips Brooks, “An Easter Carol”

Celestial spirit that doth roll
The heart’s sepulchral stone away,
Be this our resurrection day,
The singing Easter of the soul –
O gentle Master of the Wise,
Teach us to say: “I will arise.”
~ Richard Le Gallienne

“ Easter duck and Easter chick,
Easter eggs with chocolate thick.
Easter hats for one and all,
Easter bunny makes a call!
Happy Easter always brings
Such a lot of pleasant things!”

Bunny rabbits wiggle,
So much they make me giggle.
They wiggle their ears,
They wiggle their nose,
The tail on their rear,
Wiggles too, I suppose.
And just when I say “Stop wiggling, stop!”
They wiggle all over, and take a big hop!

“ May the spirit of hope that Easter brings,
Help you find contentment in little things,
And restore your faith in the Lord above,
Who gave His life for the ones He loves.”

“ Guess who’s hop, hop, hopping your way?
To wish you a hap, hap, happy Holiday.
Loaded with goodies made just for you.
It’s the Easter Bunny
That’s who.”
