Good News Story
By Lynelle Kendall
The Easter story starts at Christmas,
When a baby named Jesus was born.
A special child, sent to save all people.
He brought hope like a bright new dawn.
As a man he told people God wanted their friendship,
But the wrong things they did had to go.
God is good, he is sad when we steal, when we lie,
When we’re mean to the people we know.
The first Easter, good Friday, Jesus died on a cross,
Took away all those wrong things we do,
And to prove he’s God’s son, and that those things are gone,
He came back to life! Yes it’s true!
Trust him with your heart and you can be God’s friend!
That’s what Easter is really about.
Hot cross buns will remind us; Jesus made a way,
It’s a good news story, no doubt!
