Forever and A Day

Keep Easter in my heart, Lord.
Let my soul renew itself
each and every day
as it does on Easter morn.

Oh, let me savor that surge
of joy, the swelling of my heart,
and the gratefulness that Jesus
died so that I might live with Thee.

Keep Easter in my heart, Lord.
Remind me of it when I am
feeling overwhelmed, or when
tired and depressed over some trivial thing.

Tap me lightly on the shoulder, Lord.
Then whisper, “Remember Easter Morn.”
Trigger those sensations once more,
return that glorious Easter joy again.

Keep Easter in my heart, Lord.
Let me not forget the passion.
Show me the glory of your resurrection,
so that I may hold it close forever and a day.
