What Easter Brings

 What Easter Brings
By Linda K. Zauzig

His body gone, the cross shone bright,
the shadow of love remained.
The sins of mankind fell one by one,
too high a price He paid.

His mother’s sorrow I cannot bear,
my heart cries out to her.
I want to wrap her in my arms
and whisper, “Look, He’s here.”

Can we mortals fully grasp
the Passion of that day;
that a humble precious holy man
was put to death for me.

The nails, the blood, the thorns,
His flesh torn away,
to His Father he cried out loud,
“Why have you forsaken me?”

Take joy in knowing that He lives,
the stone was rolled away.
He rose to join His Father;
And He rose and set us free.

Behold the cross, behold the pain,
the agony He knew.
Behold the cross, His promise made
the cross where love endures.
