Devotional 4-10-16

A prayer for Easter Spring

Gracious, loving God we raise 
hearts and voices to adore
You who gave us springtime days 
and your mercy evermore. 
Thanks and praise we bring to you, 
Lord, for making all things new.

Crucifixion horrified 
those who shared the bread and wine.
Christ our Lord now glorified: 
resurrected gift divine.
Lord of all to you we raise
this our prayer of grateful praise.

Easter bears your promised word. 
Everlasting life you give.
One day we will see you, Lord. 
In your blessed arms we’ll live.
Thanks and praise to you again. 
In his name we pray.  Amen. 

Rev. Jack Lipphardt
