Humble yourself as a little child
and crawl into the nest.
With barren head and unshod feet
draw peace into your breast.
Come reverently, and shed your burden
like a pair of shoes.
Leave sin and sorrow to the One
who nurtures and renews.
Bow deeply, then arise on wings
of grace and glory born.
Remember Him. Sing sweet the song
of Resurrection Morn.
Growing older, I have come to love Easter as much as I do Christmas. Why? Because Easter is a time of renewal, a time when I can make my personal and spiritual commitment to Jesus Christ anew. He is the Savior and Redeemer of the world. Taking my sins upon Himself gladly, He died that I might live, and I am humbled by His love and sacrifice. This is why I always want to remember Him and sing sweet the song of resurrection morn.
