A Thought for Easter

        And Jesus kneeled down, and prayed,
        "Saying, Father, if Thou be willing,
        remove this cup from me:
        nevertheless not My will, but Thine, be done.
        And being in an agony He prayed more earnestly:
        and His sweat was as it were great drops of blood
        falling down to the ground."
        (Luke 22:42, 44 KJV)

        A Thought for Easter

        Had Christ refused to bear the cross
        And fill the Father's plan,
        Perhaps a new way could have been
        Prepared for fallen man.
        Yet Jesus chose to set aside

        Earth's trappings that would bind,
        And He alone is worthy now:
        Saviour of all mankind.
        Throughout the ages He will be
        Eternal Sovereign Lord,
        Rejoicing for eternity

        ...He chose Heaven's reward!


        "Looking unto Jesus
        the author and finisher of our faith;
        who for the joy that was set before Him
        endured the cross, despising the shame,
        and is set down at the right hand
        of the throne of God."
        (Hebrews 12:2 KJV)
