Poems about the Holiday of Easter

Holidays are many things to many people. For some, the primary function of a holiday is its religious significance. It is a time when specific spiritual opportunities are available to experience. For others holidays are primarily about family getting together. Most people do not work and so there is an opportunity to renew family bonds. Relatives that you haven't seen in awhile join together with you to celebrate the family that you belong too. People that do not have large families or may not want to join together with them may celebrate with friends.

15 Easter Poems - Poems about Easter

  1. 1. The Crucifixion

    My name is Fran Peck and I wrote this poem to show how our attitudes and actions of the heart crucify Christ and condemn us until we repent.

    I laughed and mocked as He walked that day,
    up a hill to redeem my soul.
    I joined the crowd to spit and jeer, 
    and I watched His sorrow grow.

  3. 2. Easter

    • By Estela Canama
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2017

    This poem about Easter is really coming from the deepest source. The Lord instilled His wisdom deep within my heart. I hope this poem will give a new blessed hope to those who are in distress.

    Let every heart be filled with joy,
    A joy of thankfulness to our Savior and King!
    He is victorious over sin and death.
    He conquered death to give us a new life.

  5. 3. Freedom In The Cross

    • By Olivia Lakis
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2017

    I wrote this poem in honor of the Easter holiday. I am a born again Christian, and the message of Christ's sacrifice on the cross is something I hold dear and am reminded of very strongly each year. The resurrection of Jesus is really the core of the faith, which is why I decided to write about it. I hope this serves as the token of hope and encouragement that is available to each of us if we choose to place our trust in Him.

    There's something that occurred
    on that evening at Calvary
    that created such a lavish stir
    in all of history.

  6. 4. Love To The Fullest

    I realize that everyone has their own personal beliefs in life and their own spiritual journey. My own personal beliefs stem from my Christian upbringing, my experiences through life, and the many trials, heartaches and blessings I have experienced. I never could have done any of it myself without faith. None of us are perfect, and we all try to do our best. There are few human beings throughout history who have set the ultimate example of love and sacrifice for all humanity as Jesus did!

    Love to the fullest once roamed our earth.
    He arrived here by means of a heavenly birth.

    From the very beginning most everyone knew

  7. 5. Thoughts Of Easter

    I've been writing poetry since I was a teenager. The reason I started writing was because my senior English teacher told me I would never see one of my poems published. It gave me that determination to prove him wrong. Everything happens for a reason. It made me want to write more and more. From being raped at 5 years old to love, marriage, and all that happened in between I hope you receive a message from my poems.

    I awoke before dawn this Easter morn,
    Laid very still and just thought,
    Not of the eggs and bunnies that Easter brings,
    But of the gift of life that it brought.

  8. 6. The Other Side Of Easter

    There are so many arguments about Easter. Some say we shouldn't celebrate it as it's pagan; others enjoy the chocolate treats it provides; others enjoy it as a time for rest and recreation. For me, Easter is important because without it, I would have no hope. Easter is a time of focus. It reminds me what Jesus Christ has done on the Cross to save me, a sinner.

    You can look, but you won't find me
    Once where I used to be.
    You may call, but I won't hear you,
    For another called to me.

  9. 7. He Did It For Me

    This is about how the death and resurrection of Jesus is seen as a personal act of grace for each of us.

    It was for me Christ Jesus died.
    So that I could live, He was crucified.
    Jesus was innocent, he knew no sin.
    But yet He died for sinful men.

  10. 8. Who Can Love Like That?

    Making the resurrection come alive by looking back to the cross.

    A celebration of love
    Is what Easter is all about.
    God expressed His love to man
    In a way we can never doubt.

  11. 9. No Second Chance

    • By Lenora McWhorter
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2019

    If Jesus had not died, we would be without hope.

    If there was no resurrection,
    there would be no hope for mankind.
    We would have no second chance
    and no peace of mind.

  13. 11. Three Years And Twelve Friends

    This poem is about the truth that nails Christianity to the cross and restored us from our sin in three days by one man.

    We've been given the greatest gift,
    The most precious, wonderful promise ever made.
    It's about the resurrection.
    This truth will never fade.

  15. 13. Resurrection

    The church contains, according to traditions dating back to at least the fourth century, the two holiest sites in Christianity: the site where Jesus of Nazareth was crucified, at a place known as "Calvary" or "Golgotha," and Jesus' empty tomb, where he is said to have been buried and resurrected. This is my version of the resurrection.

    Ridiculed and mocked, nailed to a cross.
    Each of his followers mourning his loss.
    Set down from on high, placed in a cave.
    Unmovable stone in front of his grave.

  16. 14. Resurrection Hope

    Desiring to encourage believers to celebrate Easter in a meaningful way that will empower us to stand firm during this uncertain time in our history.

    The Easter story never grows old.
    It's the message of hope for us all.
    It shows the depth of the father's love
    and how Jesus answered the call.
