When I was young, they told me
That around this time of year,
Some rabbits lay bright-colored eggs.
Now that, to me, is queer,
For other times they never
Even lay an egg that's white.
So it must be a miracle
That moves them overnight.

And yet, it seems that miracles
Are special acts of God.
And wasting them on trivia
Like that seems rather odd.
For surely God has more important
Things to fill his days.
And making hares lay colored eggs
Is quite unlike his ways.

There is an Easter miracle
That really takes your breath.
And unlike colored bunny eggs,
It deals with life and death.
It has to do with Jesus,
Who is God's eternal Son,
Who lived and taught and died
Upon a Cross for everyone.

This Jesus then, from out the tomb,
The third day rose again
To meet with his apostles,
Who were very startled men.
So if you want a miracle
That's worth God's while to give,
Be sure to tell your children.
It could change the way they live.

A God who takes the very worst
That human hate displays
And turns it to a gift of love,
That God is worth our praise.
