The Day He Saved Us

Jesus Praying

An Easter Poem

The is my 7th poem of the month of April                                              celebrating National Poetry Month.
Because of your Love
It’s because of your love
You did it for me
Just for me’
Your love
You washed away
My tears
My fears
Oh how precious
Is the blood
How can I ever repay you?
This sinful woman that I am
That you love
No matter what
Because of your love
I can live again
You shed your blood
Just for you and you and me
Love covers all wrongs
This kind of forgiveness
Then one day
They came to kill you
You handed your hands to them
Because you love me
You died that day on that hill
For me
Three days you were alive
For me
And you rose again
For me
Because of your love
Your love is the symbol of eternity
It wipes out all sense of time
Destroying all memory of a beginning
And all fear of an end.
Speaking the truth in love
We grow to become in every
Respect the mature body of him
Who is the Head, that is?
From Him
The whole body joined and held together
By every supporting ligament
Grows and builds
Itself in love
MY Lord~
What can I say?
You are so awesome
So Grand
You are YOU
Love big
Forgive big
Love the other person
Love covers all wrongs
That You say
I am making a love pact
With You
The Great I Am
Our Lord has risen for you and me and everyone. 
He died for all, even this sinful woman.
I thank you Lord.

This is just beautiful, Deborah! I am encouraged by your poem and the inspirational message of Easter. It was his love for us that we celebrate this day. I love your reference to making a pact with him -- it is a commitment that will make an eternal difference for good. Voted up.

The real meaning of our Lord's calvary has been lost into todays celebration. You have reminding us of his glory and the significance of these holidays... We have commercialized everything even on nthe day that Jesus died for us. Excellent inspiration as usual Debbie. God bless!
