An Easter Promise

An Easter Promise

By Helen Steiner Rice
Sunday, March 27, 2016

As the Easter Season dawns once again,
We look on a world of restless men.

Men who are 'driven' by fear and greed,
And caught in a web of tension and speed.

Driving themselves and the world as well,
Into a future no one can foretell.

Oh God, instead of vain 'driven men',
Fill man's heart with true 'Drive' again.

Spurred on by faith in God above,
To build a new world of 'Brotherly' love.

God give us eyes to see the beauty of the Spring,
And to behold Your majesty in every living thing.

And may we see in lacy leaves and every budding flower,
The Hand that rules the universe with gentleness and power.

And may this Easter grandeur that Spring lavishly imparts,
Awaken faded flowers of faith lying dormant in our hearts.

And give us ears to hear dear God the Springtime song of birds,
With messages more meaningful than man's often empty words.

Telling harried human beings who are lost in dark despair,
Be like us and do not worry for God has you in His care.

If we but had the eyes to see God's face in every cloud,
If we but had the ears to hear His voice above the crowd.

If we could feel His gentle touch in ever Springtime breeze,
And find a haven in His arms neath sheltering leafy trees.

If we could just lift up our hearts like flowers to the sun,
And trust His, 'Easter Promise' and pray, "Thy Will Be Done".

We'd find the peace we're seeking, the kind no man can give,
The peace that comes from knowing He, "Died" so we might Live!
