"EASTER SONNET"

 

How strange that I should feel so near to Thee

When in the past my mind did not conceive

Of all the things Thou shouldst have meant to me

And I did doubt.  But now I do believe!

 

The sun, emerging through the dawn, did kiss

The Cross of Calvary and light the earth

With hope and faith so strong it did dismiss

The fears and doubts I had.  O hour of birth!

 

In mist more clear than mid-day sun, Thy love

Inplants itself within my heart, and I

Rejoice, and know that Heavenís up above

To bring me peace enduring when I die.

 

To know Thou died for it!    And I shall fight

For such reward, defended by Thy light!
