Easter Poem



The Word gave up his majesty

To show us true humility

To dwell amongst humanity

And die upon a tree

His death that seemed a tragedy

It broke the chains and set me free

He took the blame instead of me

With what can I repay?


Buried to bring new creation

Rising to grant full salvation

Binding he that brings temptation

And trampling death and hell.

My heart cries out in jubilation

To Christ who is my vindication

To Christ who’s made my reparation

There’s nothing left to pay!
