That's a relief, Ortho! I was worried that I would somehow offend our Orthodox brethren in advertently.

I really like the Easter Sequence:
Christians, to the Paschal Victim
Offer your thankful praises!
A Lamb the sheep redeems;
Christ, who only is sinless,
Reconciles sinners to the Father.
Death and life have contended in that combat stupendous:
The Prince of life, who died, reigns immortal.
Speak, Mary, declaring
What you saw, wayfaring.
"The tomb of Christ, who is living,
The glory of Jesus' resurrection;
Bring angels attesting,
The shroud and napkin resting.
Yes, Christ my hope is arisen;
To Galilee he goes before you."
Christ indeed from death is risen, our new life obtaining.
Have mercy, victor King, ever reigning!

I am going to share my Easter poem with you all. I wrote this in 1994 and i hope you all like it Blessings and Peace!
Faith is The Key
Who will tarry with me for a while?
Who will stand in the gap as i go through my trial?
They all were asleep,and His Spirit did groan,
Our Lord Christ the Saviour,prayed to God all alone.
He wept in the garden,tears of blood filled His eyes,
And soon came the soldiers with torches,swords,and cries-
"Where is he,who says he's the heavenly being?
Where's this Jesus who claims he's the Son of the King?"
They took Him to Pilot who found no sin in Him.
Still the crowd had cried out,"Crucify! Crucify Him!"
so they scourged Him and beat Him and made Him a crown-
Then they spit in His face,as the blood trickled down,
And they tore off His clothes,and robed Him in red
As they pushed down on the crown of thorns on His head.
And they built Him a cross to carry up hill-
As he stumbled and fell they beat on Him still.
When finally His walk had come to an end,
They drove nails through the hands and feet of a friend.
His whole body ached and His heart broke in two-
It literally broke, for He loved me and you.
His royal blood dripped down from His face,
As He hung there and died for the whole human race.
His eyes looked on sadly as the crowd had cheered on,
And at the third hour,they knew He was gone.
The earth shook and trembled and darkness was deep,
As the graves were all opened of ones past in sleep.
The crowd all ran swiftly, and a voice did declare,
"Twas Christ the Messiah that hung and died there!"
So like the third hour the third day He arose
And appeared in the garden with sparkling white clothes.
He smiled as He stood there, in white clothes adorned.
He looked like a new man who'd just been reborn.
To those who had seen Him,
there was no disbelief.
To those who betrayed Him their hearts were in grief.
To those who believe,yet their eyes did not see;
Their faith is their blessing,for Faith is the Key!
1994 Nancy D. Blessings and Peace!
