Herald of hope

on

The herald came from the east

A Messiah was born

With the blast of the horn

Angels announced His birth

He lived amongst His creation

Lowly and shunning distractions

Till the work was done

And his time had come

He celebrated the feast without yeast

In remembrance of deliverance from death

His last act was to duel with death

That He may bring life to all

A price no one else could pay

He took it up on Himself in one day

And on that day long ago, a Friday

He bore the sins of the whole world

A lamb led to the slaughter, he uttered not a word

Through his death, he brought redemption

Buried in the belly of the earth, he preached salvation

And while the believers mourned

He rejoiced

The sun arose, on the third day, from the east

And heralded hope for all mankind; it is Easter!

    A nicely composed piece of poetry, taking into summary the complete essence of Easter…renewed hope through the redeeming blood of the Lowly Lowly Lamb slaughtered and crucified at calvary! May His death not be in vain in our lives, and may we also profit greatly from everything that Easter stands for IJN, Amen! πŸ™πŸ˜‡πŸ˜Š
