Calvary and Easter

A song of sunshine through the rain,
Of spring across the snow;
A balm to heal the hurts of pain,
A peace surpassing woe.

Spa Garden III by Donna Geissler

Lift up your heads, ye sorrowing ones,
And be ye glad of heart,
For Calvary and Easter Day
Were just three days apart!
















With shudder of despair and loss
The world's deep heart is wrung,
As, lifted high upon His cross,
The Lord of Glory hung-
When rocks were rent, and ghostly forms
Stole forth in street and mart;

But Calvary and Easter Day,
Earth's blackest day, and whitest day,

Were just three days apart.




Have a Blessed Easter, Mimi

Hi Mimi,
Thanks for visiting my blog and for the inspired comments you left behind. I will be linking you with my Christian blog and I hope you do the same with mine. I love your poem. Speaks so much of your love for the Lord. The Lord said that we would find Him if we will only seek Him with all our heart (Jeremiah 29: 13-14). Thanks again. God bless you and your loved ones always.
