Easter Poems For Church
God sent His Son to take the punishment
For all the thoughtless, sinful things we do;
Jesus gave his life because He loves us;
His love is boundless, sweet, forever true.
On Easter morn He showed He is our Savior;
His resurrection proves He is our Lord.
That is why we tell you,
He secured our heavenly reward!” –Joanna Fuchs
“May your Easter be happy,
May your day be bright,
May you enjoy the treats,
And sweet delights.
But remember the meaning,
Remember God’s gift,
Remember the resurrection,
May your soul uplift.” –Bill Hoeneveld
“May the glad dawn
Of Easter morn
Bring joy to thee.
May the calm eve
Of Easter leave
A peace divine with thee.
May Easter night
On thine heart write,
O Christ, I live for thee!” –Anonymous
“Easter lilies! Can you hear
What they whisper, low and clear?
In dewy fragrance they unfold
Their splendor sweet, their snow and gold.
Every beauty-breathing bell
News of heaven has to tell.
Listen to their mystic voice.
Hear, oh mortal, and rejoice!
Hark, their soft and heavenly chime!
Christ is risen for all time!” –Cela Thaxter
“On Easter Day the lilies bloom,
Triumphant, risen from their tomb;
Their bulbs have undergone rebirth,
Born from the silence of the earth
Symbolically, to tell all men
That Christ, the Saviour, lives again.
The angels, pure and white as they,
Have come and rolled the stone away
And with the lifting of the stone,
The shadow of the cross is gone!” –June Masters Bacher
Easter Poems For Kids
“I’m an Easter Bunny, watch me hop. (hop around)
Here are my two eats, see how they flop. (hold hands at sides of head and flop them)
Here is my cotton tail, here is my nose, (wiggle hips, then point to nose.)
I’m all furry from my head to my toes. (point to head, then to toes)” –Susan M. Paprocki
“With a hip and a hop—
Easter bunny won’t you stop,
At my house to hide some yummy little eggs.
Then you’ll jump out and run –
Down the street for some fun,
Zippity quick on your fuzzy, furry legs.
To hide treats for the others –
Boys and girls –even mothers,
Treats galore packed in baskets and bright bags!” –Leanne Guenther
“Christ the Lord is risen to-day!
Angels rolled the stone away
From the tomb wherein He lay!
Little children, come and sing,
“Glory, glory to the King,
Christ the Lord of everything!” –Evaleen Stein

Are good to eat.
Pretty and funny.

Is the Easter bunny?” –Anonymous
“Easter bunny soft and white
Hopping quickly out of sight,
Thank you for the eggs you bring
At Easter time to welcome spring.
Yellow eggs and blue and red
In the grass and flower bed
We will hunt them everywhere
Is it really you who put them there?” –Anonymous

Bunnies, eggs & jellybeans,
That’s not all that Easter means.
There is another message too..
Jesus died for me and you!” –Anonymous
