    Easter Collection 2016

    CRUCIFIX

    You were the love
    Of the world
    And we nailed you to a cross
    We tried to kill love
    With nail in hand
    And spear in flesh
    But we failed
    You pleaded for us
    Apologised for us
    Then you died for us
    Youíre the love
    Of the world

    LETíS GET THIS STRAIGHT ONCE AND FOR ALL # 1

    Letís get this straight once and for all
    Easter does not commemorate the time
    When Jesus hid eggs in the gardens
    Of Gethsemane for the disciples to find

    MORNGY THURSDAY

    At a soup kitchen, they ran out of food
    Due to a basic error in their sums
    And tempers flared among the homeless
    In fact there were a lot of hot cross bums

    FOR A FEW SILVER COINS

    One of the twelve
    Chosen Apostles
    Possessed of Evil?
    Or pawn of Christ
    Judas Iscariot met
    High Priest Caiaphas
    And left the temple
    With the Sanhedrin bribe
    ďThirty pieces of silverĒ
    Bought an apostle
    And Christís fate was sealed
    For after the last supper
    In the gardens of Gethsemane
    Judas Iscariot delivered
    His kiss of betrayal
    Condemning them both
    By that single act
    To an untimely death
    Judas by his own hand
    And Christ on the cross

    MY SON WAS A MASTER EASTER EGG HUNTER

    My son was a master Easter Egg Hunter
    From the time he was a few years old
    And had it become an Olympic event,
    He would have easily have won the Gold

    GETHSEMANE

    In that favoured retreat
    Of Gethsemaneís garden
    Did the Prince of peace
    In his agonies
    Sweat blood upon
    That fertile ground
    Forsaken by his father
    Doubting his destiny
    And how wretchedly betrayed
    By that simple Judas kiss

    EASTER PARADOX

    One of the paradoxes of family life
    Is that kids will never admit to parents
    That they donít believe in the Easter Bunny
    While chocolate eggs accompany events

    VIA DOLOROSA

    The path that Jesus walked
    Carrying his cross with him
    Was the Via Dolorosa
    In the old city of Jerusalem
    It was the way of sorrows
    The way of grief
    The way of suffering
    For his life so brief

    EASTER BUNNY

    About the Easter bunny
    I think itís really funny
    That a big white rabbit
    Is in the unusual habit
    Of delivering Easter eggs
    On his funny rabbit legs
    I think it must change
    And we must rearrange
    So for delivering at any rate
    Eggs made of choco-late
    Employ a chocolate chicken
    Thatís what I reckon

    LETíS GET THIS STRAIGHT ONCE AND FOR ALL # 2

    Letís get this straight once and for all
    Easter Day does not commemorate
    The a day in the gardens Of Gethsemane
    When Jesus turned rabbits into chocolate

    ON A HILL IN CALVARY

    On a hill in Calvary
    In a savage unenlightened time
    Nailed upon a rugged cross
    By brutal hand
    They thought to kill a man
    To snuff out his light
    That light of purest love
    Unquenchable, indestructible
    On that hill in Calvary
    He died for us
    The shadow of that cross
    Cast upon the bloody land
    Was an illuminating shadow
    That spread light and love
    Shining across millennia
    Unquenchable, indestructible
    On that hill in Calvary
    He died for us
    In that savage unenlightened time
    Murdered by brutal hand
    Humiliated, dehumanized
    But through his love for us
    And his sacrifice for us
    He redeemed us

    EASTER EGG HUNT

    When it comes to hiding the eggs
    In the garden at Easter
    I can actually hide my own eggs now
    Thanks to Dementia

    EASTER ISNíT JUST ABOUT EASTER EGGS

    Easter isnít just about Easter eggs
    I have a far deeper meaning in mind
    Easter marks the death and resurrection
    Of the saviour of all mankind

    EASTER PARADE

    In your Easter Bonnet
    With all the frills upon it,
    Youíre never going to wear it?
    In the Easter parade.
    Weíll all be falling over
    As your sitting in your Rover
    Coz youíll be the biggest Charlie
    In the Easter parade.

    THE SHADOW OF GOLGOTHA

    Our lord beaten and bloody
    Sent to die like a criminal
    To add insult upon injury
    Atop his tousled curls
    Was set a thorny crown
    Pressed into his scalp
    He carried his cross
    Upon his bloodied back
    Through narrow streets
    To the baying of the crowds
    Then onto the hill of Calvary
    Where the prince of peace
    Was nailed to his cross of pain
    And dealt the final blow
    His side pierced by a spear
    His earthly life ebbing away
    Through the open wound
    He called out to God
    But not for vengeance
    He asked that they be forgiven
    And his cross of pain
    Cast a Holy shadow
    Across the world
    That reached every corner
    But the shadow cast
    Was not one of darkness
    But one of light
    A divine light
    The light of love
    Which still shines today
    For it is the eternal light of God
