“Jesus was there too …”


we gave you a pageant, a play, a parade

colours and eggs and crosses and crèches

all arrayed in colourful splendour for you

this truth we believe and proclaim to you

in the smiles on the faces of our children

in their tears of joy as they tear at paper

in colourful little sweets scattered in our yards

we opened our doors to you, asked you inside

we gave you coffee, cookies, tea and cakes

we even had bread and wine a cross and a tomb

spoke with tearful emotion of their part

in the dramatic tragedy that gives us life

it was beautiful, lovely, had swelling music

what reason, after seeing all that we did,

do you have to refuse so great a salvation?


Jesus was there, He was there in the pageant

right in the middle … couldnt you see him?


After reading this Facebook post:


“[Church] kids took an Easter parade around the block,

led by the Easter Chicken and The Bunny with a few Palm Sunday colts.

Jesus was there too, you just couldn't see him.”


Jesus ws there too ...
