5 Religious Easter Poems to Celebrate Jesus
“God sent His Son to take the punishment
For all the thoughtless, sinful things we do;
Jesus gave His life because He loves us;
On Easter morn He showed He is our Savior;
His resurrection proves He is our Lord.
That is why we tell you, Happy Easter!
He secured our heavenly reward!”Joanna Fuchs
“So special He is my Savior, my King,
Ruler, Creator, His praises I sing.
The wondrous amazement of all that He’s done,
My Heavenly Father send down His own son.
How blessed we are to have such a chance,
No longer condemned to one circumstance.
But Jesus came down His life He did not give,
That all whom believed through Him now may live.
Though His death there alone did not pay our way,
For He is alive and the stone rolled away.
Thank you dear Jesus for saving my soul,
Through your birth, death, and resurrection I am made whole!”Angela Ciero

“Up with the sunrise,
Excitement is in the air,
Is finally here.
Brand new clothes
And a freshly washed face,
Going to church to give thanks
For God’s grace.”Kelly Roper
“It’s impossible to find any other who could suffer, die,
And be resurrected,
To give an eternal gift
That’s Easter.”Joanna Fuchs
“Am I stone, and not a sheep,
That I can stand, O Christ, beneath thy cross,
To number drop by drop Thy Blood’s slow loss,
And yet not we?
Not so those women loved
Who with exceeding grief lamented Thee;
Not so fall Peter weeping bitterly;
Not so the thief was moved;
Not so the Sun and Moon
Which hid their faces in a starless sky,
A horror of great darkness at broad noon-
I, only I.
Yet give not o’er,
But seek Thy sheep, true Shepherd of the flock;
Greater than Moses, turn and look once more
And smite a rock.”Christina Rossetti

10 Easter Haikus for Jesus by Grant Getts
The following poems are all haikus, written by Grant Getts. Haikus may be short, sweet and to the point, but they can be powerful when spoken from the heart, and about someone as special to us as Jesus Christ.
Waves, wind, rain, and hail
beat upon the Eternal
Rock to no avail.
Many rescues change
worry to wonder how He
will save Me this time.
Jesus offers us
the true solution to
climates of chaos.
Offer Me all your
darkest thoughts to be gladly
transformed in My love.
all rests on humility
directing each one.
Near Jesus I see
my weakness. I feel humble
and yet not accused.
Believing the Word
will free your soul to grow in
the Truth, Life and Light.
Jesus’ voice gathers
from danger, death and darkness
to His name of life.
Jesus invites you
to draw pure water from His
well of joy and love.
Trust the wisdom of
The Man Of Sorrows with your
struggles and sadness.
