Easter Joy

Jesus came to earth,
To show us how to live,
How to put others first,
How to love and how to give.

Then He set about His work,
That God sent Him to do;
He took our punishment on Himself;
He made us clean and new.

He could have saved Himself,
Calling angels from above,
But He chose to pay our price for sin;
He paid it out of love.

Our Lord died on Good Friday,
But the cross did not destroy
His resurrection on Easter morn
That fills our hearts with joy.

Now we know our earthly death,
Like His, is just a rest.
We'll be forever with Him
In heaven, where life is best.

So we live our lives for Jesus,
Think of Him in all we do.
Thank you Savior; Thank you Lord.
Help us love like you!

By Joanna Fuchs

This religious Easter message on Jesus Christ is an Easter resurrection poem.

Celebrate Our Savior

On Easter morn, we celebrate our Savior;
Whatever people seek in Him, they find.
In history, there has never been another
So holy, sacrificial, good and kind.

His resurrection makes us all immortal;
In heaven, we’ll be together with our King.
Eternally we’ll share in all His blessings;
Happy Easter! Jesus Christ is everything!

Christian Easter poetry should tell the why and how of Easter. This Christian Easter poem in free verse is a Christian Easter message that sums up the basics of who Jesus is and why we celebrate Easter. 

Easter Love

On Easter we celebrate love,
love coming down from heaven,
love blanketing the earth
in a transforming embrace;
unique and infinite love,
giving more than we can imagine
for us, to cleanse our sin,
a perfect sacrifice, Lamb of God,
the walking, talking Word.
He is teacher, role model, friend,
this God in human form,
dying, then rising from the dead,
proving all who believe
will also rise
to have eternal life, with Him,
Lord of all.
Oh, Happy, Happy Easter!

By Joanna Fuchs

Christian Easter poems can tell the Easter story in rhyme, in a Christian Easter message. This free religious Christian Easter poem tells the condensed version.

Easter Means Eternal Life

A perfect God demands a perfect justice;
He cannot let us get away with sin.
We used God’s gift of our free will to trespass,
So heaven’s gates were closed; we couldn’t get in.

Our sin required our blood, a sacrifice,
To atone for all the wrongs that we had done.
"But I love them!" cried our Father, filled with sorrow;
"I’ll send my only Son to be the one."

Good Friday marks the slaying of our Jesus,
The unblemished lamb, the perfect sacrifice.
He took our guilt and blame upon Himself,
So we could be with Him in paradise.

On Easter morning, he came back from death;
He vanished from the tomb, the empty grave.
His resurrection means eternal life
For us, the ones he came to earth to save.

This summarizes all the Easter story
And because of it, we’ll be with Him in glory.

Christian Easter poem His Love on dawn background with cross.

His Love

God sent his Son to take the punishment
For all the thoughtless, sinful things we do.
Jesus gave his life because He loves us;
His love is boundless, sweet, forever true.

On Easter morn He showed He is our Savior.
His resurrection proves He is our Lord.
That is why we tell you, "Happy Easter!"
He secured out heavenly reward.

This Christian Easter poem in free verse relates life on earth to our eternal destiny as a result of Jesus’ resurrection, celebrated each Easter.

This Life on Earth

Easter means that this life on earth
is not all there is.
Jesus went "to prepare a place for us"
in His Father’s heavenly mansions
for all eternity.
Jesus died for our sins,
paying our penalty,
so that we could be forgiven.
He was resurrected, to prove
that death has no hold
on those who repent
and accept Him as Savior.
This life on earth is a prelude
to eternal joy with our Lord.
Easter is a celebration
of our eternal destiny.

Christian Easter poems often specifically mention Jesus' resurrection. This free religious Easter poem, in free verse, does that. This Christian Easter message is very true.

Without Easter

Without Easter,
there would be no hope of heaven.
Without the hope of heaven,
there would be no repentance,
no personal transformation,
no attempt to follow biblical principles.
Without Easter,
the world would be in chaos
and darkness.
Jesus’ death and resurrection
means we can be reborn,
to live better, to do better,
to shine light into the shadows.
Happy, Happy Easter.

 Easter poetry can be secular, with Easter bunnies and such, or it can consist of religious Easter poems, with Christian Easter messages, like this free Christian Easter poem.

To All Who Love Him

O God of the Universe,
you shed your glory, your majesty,
your omnipotence
to become human, as Jesus Christ--
to get close to us, to connect with us,
to be our role model and guide for living.
O God of the Universe,
you became the human Jesus Christ,
to know us, to feel all we feel,
to show us how much you love us
by taking within yourself all our sins.
O God of the Universe,
you felt not just one person's pain
but the pain of all of us,
to wash us clean and bond with us,
your creation, your children.
O God of the Universe,
you proved your trancendent holy power
by rising from the dead,
a sign that all of us who believe in You
will also rise to be with You eternally.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ
is the "Happy" in "Happy Easter."
Happy Easter to all those who love Him.

By Joanna Fuchs

This free Christian Easter poem emphasizes repentance and belief, or faith, which the Bible says are essential for salvation. It's a religious Easter poem, Christian Easter poetry that emphasizes the importance of Jesus Christ. This Christian Easter message reminds us to live our lives according to biblical commands.

A Second Chance

God always wants the best for us,
But in Eden we sinned; we really blew it.
We disobeyed God’s direct decree;
We separated from Him, and we knew it.

You’d think we’d learn to behave ourselves,
But through all time, we just kept doing it;
Piling wrong on top of wrong,
Our punishment—we kept accruing it.

Jesus came and changed all that;
He paid the price for all our sins;
When we repent and believe in Him,
We change, and a better life begins.

Easter stands for a second chance
For us to choose to put things right;
If we repent, and really believe,
Our record is polished clean and bright.

When Jesus rose from the dead back then,
He guaranteed our eternal life,
Reunited with God in heaven,
Free from tears and fears and strife.

Easter ensures paradise
For all of us, for you and me;
We’re reconciled to our Lord and King
For now and all eternity.

This short Christian Easter poem is a free religious Easter poem that tells of the blessings of Easter. It's an inspirational Easter poem, in free verse, a Christian Easter message that sums up the Christian version of Easter.

If Not For Easter

If not for Easter,
the chaos of this world
would be all there is
and all there ever would be.
If not for Easter,
the unfairness of life
would drive us to despair.
But God sent His Son
to give eternal life
filled with peace, happiness
and unimaginable blessings
to those who choose Him.
All we have to do is choose Him.
Happy, Happy Easter!

By Joanna Fuchs

This Christian Easter poem compares what Jesus did to what humans can do.


It's impossible to find any other
who could suffer, die,
be resurrected,
and give an eternal gift
to humankind.
That's Jesus.
That's Easter.

By Joanna Fuchs

Christian Easter poems can also tell the long version of the Easter story, in a rhyming Christian Easter message. This free Christian Easter poem could be an Easter Sunday poem for church. This is Christian Easter poetry to remember.

The Easter Story

Jesus came to compensate
For all the wrongs we do.
He came to earth to die for us,
So we’d be born anew.

"This bitter cup, let it pass from me,"
He cried, in a plaintive voice;
"Yet not My will, but Thine be done;"
He said, in His faithful choice.

The Judas kiss would seal his fate;
He faced a hostile crowd;
The governor, Pilate, saw through it all;
Jesus’ guilt he disavowed.

"I wash my hands of all of this,"
Said Pilate, "Let Him be."
But the crowd yelled "Crucify him now,
And set Barabbas free!"

Pilate yielded to their wish;
And Jesus was led away.
The soldiers beat him, and mocked Him, too,
Yet He continued to obey.

A crown of thorns lay on His head,
As His sentence was carried out;
His hands and feet were pierced with nails,
But He did not scream or shout.

"Father, forgive them for this crime;
They know not what they do."
He said this despite His torment, because,
He was thinking of me and you.

"It is finished," he sighed in His anguish and pain,
As His body gave up to death.
The curtain tore, and darkness fell,
After He took His last breath.

The best of the story is the very last part;
It’s why on Easter we’re filled with pleasure:
Death could not our Savior hold;
His power is beyond all measure.

He rose from the grave, and was seen all around;
Ever since, He’s inspired devotion,
And we’ll be with Him for eternity,
When we get our heavenly promotion.

That’s why Easter is a major event:
He suffered and died in our place.
He rose and forgave us and loves us still,
Our Savior of matchless grace.

By Joanna Fuchs

Christian Easter poetry should include love, like the love Christ showed for us by dying on the cross for our sins. This Christian Easter poem has a message of Christian love, in addition to separating secular from Christian Easter.

Just Prayers

No colored eggs
Or bunnies here,
Just deep-felt love
For Christ, so dear.

No easter baskets
Full of fluff,
No jelly beans
And other stuff.

No superior looks,
No strife, no fights
With those who keep
The worldly rites.

No condemnation
For those who do,
Just prayers for them
To love Him, too.

By Joanna Fuchs

This free verse Christian Easter Poem explains it all.

Easter Marks Reunion

The Creator of the universe,
the King of Kings,
wanted communion,
wanted to bond
with those He had created;
but He had given them free will,
and they did not respond
to an unknowable God.

So He came to earth
in human form,
to teach, to be a role model.
A Holy God requires
a holy sacrifice for sin.
So God, in human form,
allowed His own sacrifice
for our sins,
so we could be reunited
with our Creator.

His resurrection proves
that we, also, will be resurrected
in Heaven, to mansions and wonders
our God has made for us.
Easter marks the resurrection.
That’s why Easter
is a Christian’s highest Holy Day.
Happy Easter!

By Joanna Fuchs

Easter Gate

Jesus came to show us how
To live and love on earth, right now.
Then he died to erase our sin,
So the pearly gates would let us in.

Raised from death, Jesus is our guide
Through our own death to the other side.
Believe in Jesus, and you'll be
Written in the book of eternity.

Easter means, in heaven, life,
Free from sadness, free from strife.
If your name is in God's journal,
You're assured of life eternal.

By Joanna Fuchs

What Easter Means to Me

Easter morning, God be praised,
Jesus Christ from death was raised.

On Good Friday, Jesus died;
All for us, He was crucified.

Jesus bore the pain for me,
From my sin, to set me free.

Death could not confine our Lord,
And to life He was restored.

Easter morn we consecrate,
His resurrection to celebrate.

Jesus’ love means when we die,
We’ll live in heaven with Him on high.

Our Savior loves us awesomely;
That’s what Easter means to me.
