An Easter Prayer

by Susan Nikitenko
(Wadsworth, Ohio)

Oh, Lord you give a song in the night.

While my head is on my pillow;
Your Holy Word brings me comfort and light;
Such a gentle peaceful billow.

Knowing your love is unchangeable -
and knowing you are merciful.
Brings me to tears of gratitude;
For a fountain so beautiful.

A fountain of love, a fountain of grace;
Your pardon flowing from Calvary.
For wretched poor sinners just like me;
A fountain flowing abundantly.

A fountain of life paid for in blood;
Holy blood, perfect blood, Your blood.
You died a torturous death that day;
Yet your lips still cried out in love.

A victorious fountain of hope;
Eternal life offered to mankind.
To the lowest of lowest sinner;
A breaking of fetters that bind.

A resurrection to a new life;
A new hope, a new name, a new day.
And as you arose from deaths grave;
So is the soul for which you save.

A fountain, Easter's story unfolds;
Living water so pure and free;
The purpose for which you were born.
To die, to live and to redeem.

As I close my eyes in whispered prayer;
Oh, may I praise you the night long.
In both my heart and all my dreams;
May you be the theme of my song.
