Easter came to Martha
And Mary Magdalene
When they came that first morning
Upon the garden scene;
But Easter came to my heart
When I was all alone,
Caught up in a whirlwind ~
Far away from home.
At first they were bewildered
By such a wondrous sight
Until the angel spoke to them ~
Led them to the light;
And just like them I doubted
All the tenderness inside
But found I had to yield to Love,
Leave my worldly pride.
They took the news to Peter,
To Andrew and to John;
For all of them it was so hard to
Understand ~ move on.
It was then that they discovered
The word of God is true!
Wonder of wonders, I
Discovered this truth too.
When Easter comes to your heart
And at last you learn to lean
You find the sharp two edged sword
Can always slip between
The ways of man - the ways of God;
The dross that takes away
From splendid beauty planned for you
Upon the upward way.
When Easter comes to dwell with you
Each day your whole life through;
When you burn all the bridges that
Dealt misery to you,
When Easter comes - though nights be long
There’s a hand that guides you through;
There’s a song to sing, when it’s not yet Spring -
There’s a heaven waiting you!
