Text Box: Text Box: Rabbits and colored eggs for some are alright
And childrenís candies and new clothes delight
Abut rabbits, candies and new clothing by far
Donít really tell the story of Easter and how things really are

Easter started as a truly wonderful day
Though not in such a material way
It began when Jesus cared for man so much
The H e gave His very life away!

He didnít do it for fun and games or to make the earth dark
Thunder and rain
But with a tender heart He sought to free
With his blood, cleansing sin from you and me.

So on Calvary amid the sneers of men
He gave up life on earth, for a time it did end
In the power of His Spirit He took the keys
Of death and hell as satan watched on his knees

And on that very first Easter morn He arose,
And victory of satan when was composed
Of the blessed love of Jesus Christ,
Bringing men out of darkness into His marvelous light

Then ascended Himself to heaven to stay
On the right-hand of Godís power until the day
That all things are then placed under his feet
And the faces of all living in judgment he shall greet.

Now rabbits and colored eggs to some are alright
And childrenís candies and new clothes delight
But on must know Easterís meaning true
And the One who rose to give us life anew.

For in His name you must be cleansed
And your hearts filled with His Spirit the spirit of king.
For rabbits and candies and new clothing by far
Canít tell the story of Easter and how things really are
