Easter in the City

Because Easter is about more than pretty shoes & a new dress...

The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen could ever tell
It goes beyond the highest star
And reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair bowed down with care
God gave His Son to win
His erring child He reconciled
And pardoned from his sin.

Could we with ink the oceans fill
And were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill
And every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole
 Though stretched from sky to sky.

O, love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints' and angels' song.

Frederick M. Lehman, 1917

good communication is as stimulating as black coffee,

and just as hard to sleep after.
