Easter Music ~
I hear Easter music
When I see Easter baskets like I once had,
I loved Easter so much
It was a time to be glad.
On my first Easter I had this beautiful basket
I remember it, like it was yesterday
There was a shiny egg to look through
To see the special treat inside,
Of bunnies and a hidden egg to find.
Or a beautiful scene was in there
Of little people and houses
It looked so real,
Every Easter I had an egg just like that to
I was so delighted to have a big foil bunny to
Little sugar ducks and chocolate eggs
With delicious fillings so sweet,
The little town with a train
The trees all branched out with fruit to eat,
Baskets with beautiful ribbons
Cotton candy or a caramel apple treat.
Than came a new Easter Bonnet
With flowers of all kinds, yellow, pink and
The dress was made of ladlers silk
Shoes all shiny new.
Then when I walked out to church
I looked like a princess,
With feathers and Easter blooms on my hat
So glad to know Easter is coming back.
When I looked at the gold cross
I felt blessed and loved
There has never been a time, Jesus was not
At Easter, I felt loved most of all
Easter will always be a happy time for my
heart to see.

Do you remember me
The people's poet
I want to be
like Jesus and live each day for him.
I want to be like Jesus and keep my heart from
So lovingly he watches me and teaches me what
I should be.
So joyfully I give my heart and live each day
