44 Days Until Easter


One of my favourite songs we often sing around easter time is Ev’ry Morning is Easter Morning. I love the way it points beyond the one morning beside the tomb or, in the modern case, with baskets of goodies and easter egg hunts.

Ev’ry morning is Easter morning from now on!
Ev’ry day’s resurrection day, the past is over and gone!

1.
Good-bye guilt, good-bye fear, good riddance! Hello, Lord, Hello, sun!
I am one of the Easter People! My new life has begun!

Ev’ry morning is Easter morning from now on!
Ev’ry day’s resurrection day, the past is over and gone!

2.
Daily news is so bad it seems the Good News seldom gets heard.
Get it straight from the Easter People! God’s in charge spread the word!

Ev’ry morning is Easter morning from now on!
Ev’ry day’s resurrection day, the past is over and gone!

3.
Yesterday I was bored and lonely; But today look and see!
I belong to the Easter People! Life’s exciting to me!

Ev’ry morning is Easter morning from now on!
Ev’ry day’s resurrection day, the past is over and gone!
Ev’ry morning is Easter morning,
Ev’ry morning is Easter morning,
Ev’ry morning is Easter morning,
From now on!

As we journey through the next 44 days we will look again at the life and ministry of Christ as well as reflecting on our own lives and actions in terms of Christ’s example. Don’t forget though, we are some of the Easter people and our new life has already begun!

(If you are not familiar with the Gospel story and the Good News, I recommend you read the book of Matthew in the New testament section of a Bible.)
