One God, One Savior: A Belated Easter Poem

Yes, I know. This is late. Like...a week and a half late. Keep in mind that I'm part of a pastor's family, though, and we get even more busy around Easter time, so give me a little grace. At least I still WROTE an Easter poem, ok?

After doing two other Easter poems (this is my third annual poem) I was hard put to make one unique from the other two, while still keeping the same message. You'll have to tell me how I did. ;)


One God, One Savior

One God who created our wonderful world
One plan for all our salvation unfurled
One baby, one manger, and one humble birth
One Holy Gift given to the whole planet earth

Two parents who heeded God's sovereign voice
Two people who actually made the right choice
Two parents who raised the Savior of men
Two who did not know just how it would end

One disciple was paid for one dirty job
One kiss to betray his Lord to a mob
One disciple said he would stay by His side
One who later denied Christ and cried

Three men were killed on a Golgotha cross
One was Christ, one was saved, and one was lost
Two deserved the terrible death given them
One would die innocent for the sins of all men

One anguished cry toward His Father above
Two tears dripped down in sorrow and love
One cross took the life of our Savior and Lord
Three bloody streams from His body out-poured

Three days in darkness the body then laid
Three days for the people He had just saved
Three days he was dead in a cold, lonely grave
Three days until the stone rolled away

Two disciples who ran to the tomb that dawn
Two who saw that His body was indeed gone
One who doubted saw his Savior alive
One who then touched His hands, feet, and side

One sacrifice of love which set us all free
One Savior who now hold the eternal key
To one heaven that we can now all enter in
If we cast on Him our guilt and our sin

Believe this one thing and you will be saved
Believe in the sacrifice of love which He gave
Believe me when I say that there is no other way
If you want to see heaven from the inside one day

I hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating our risen Savior! I know our family did. :)
