“Easter Blessings Be Thine”, ca. 1912
MY EASTER PRAYER – 1943
Jesus help me know thy love,
Love that brought thee to our earth.
Leaving realms of brightest glory,
For a lowly manger birth.
Love that chose the hasty Peter,
Cleansed the striken Magdalen.
Patiently endured the traitor,
Made the vilest sinner clean.
Love that led thee to the cross,
Round thee there with fetters strong.
Though a word from thee had scattered,
Those who thought they did thee wrong.
Love that suffered for my sins,
Took their sorrow in my stead.
That I might rejoice in heaven,
Ransomed ever from the dead.
Love that’s mine in this today,
Guiding me while earth I roam.
Shaping me into thy image,
Bringing me to thy own home.
Jesus help me feel thy love,
At this joyous Easter season.
When I view again thy passion,
And thy sacrifice envision.
