A perfect God demands a perfect justice,
He cannot let us get away with sin;
We used Godís gift of our free will to trespass,
So heavenís gates were closed ... we couldnít get in.
Our sin required our blood, a sacrifice,
To atone for all the wrongs that we had done;
"But I love them!" cried our Father, filled with sorrow,
"Iíll send my only Son to be the one."
Good Friday marks the slaying of our Jesus,
The unblemished lamb, the perfect sacrifice;
He took our guilt and blame upon Himself,
So we could be with Him in paradise.
On Easter morning, he came back from death,
He vanished from the tomb, the empty grave;
His resurrection means eternal life,
For us, the ones he came to earth to save.
This summarizes all the Easter story,
And because of it,
Weíll be with Him in glory.
