Easter is the ever shining Light
in The Valley of the Shadow of Life
Whose gleam dispels the darkness
Of men's minds;
Whose radiance penetrates the hardness
Of men's hearts;
Whose glory transcends the outreach
Of all time.
Easter's Victory has robbed death of its sting;
Easter's Vitality is regenerating a new humanity;
Easter's eVentuallity is the Kingdom of God on earth.
Mabel Smith Brown
Crusts of earth are opening
Green shoots are peering through
Buds on trees are bursting
New life's coming into view.
Nature tells us Christ has risen!
Freshness of life appears.
Spring-time is unfolding
Nature shouts triumphant cheers.
Man too may join the chorus;
Sing out with clear accord.
For life anew is ours
Through Jesus Christ The Lord!
Mable Smith Brown
