He is Risen
Not only did Christ take on our sins when He died for us on the cross, He also rose from the dead, conquering death, to sit at the right hand of God the Father who reigns in Heaven. He will come again to reign on Earth and in Heaven. A mortal man can die, but only the immortal Christ, the Son of God, can rise from the dead on His own accord. Easter Day is our most important religious holiday because it is the crux and foundation of our Christian faith. For He is the Son of God, He is Risen, and He lives! So, I write this poem in celebration proclaiming Jesus Christ, our Savior, the Son of God, has Risen on Easter Day!
He is Risen!
Christ died for me so I might win
He set me free from all my sin
I am innocent as a child once again
Christ is now both my brother and friend
His blood has made me brand new
It is my heart that He did woo
I saw the light then suddenly knew
My faith and trust in Him then grew
I am now no longer one who is lost
Because of love He paid the cost
My eternal life has not been tossed
Because my Savior died for me on the cross
Always next to me is where Christ stands
He is on my side so I know I will and can
With gratitude and thanks my heart expands
Into His arms is where I rest and land
It comforts me that He is really there
I can bear all, even if the world is unfair
My promise with my life is to always serve and care
It is to Him I send my praise and prayers
My soul is only for Him that it longs
Thankfulness lifts my heart to song
My debt is paid, erased and now gone
Even all my sins, mistakes, and wrongs
For you and me, He came to live and die
Then from death on the 3rd day to rise
He is the final answer to all the whys
He paid the price for my soul He did buy
The Son of God, the Son of Man
From the beginning He was part of God's eternal plan
He awaits for me with His outstretched open hand
Now on my soul I have His seal and brand
God so loved us to give His only Son
It is He who finished it all, now over and done
He calls and beckons for me to come
From Him never again will I ever run
The bondage and shackles have been released
I am now His to always forever keep
My love for God runs strong and deep
Then to Heaven after my final awakened sleep
My Savior He lives on within me
With the Father and Holy Spirit, the Trinity
My soul yearns one day for Him to see
To my heart Christ holds the lasting key
He is the Alpha and Omega, the final say
No longer for my sins do I have to pay
I give glory to God now and will always
Because Christ is risen on this Easter Day

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him."
"Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life."
"I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world."
"Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;'"
"Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going."
"Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'"
"But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
"No, the Father himself loves you because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God. I came from the Father and entered the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father."
"'I am the Alpha and the Omega,' says the Lord God, 'who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.'"
