The Message of the Lilies 

By Roselea Nellis 

 

“He is risen,” shout the lilies,
From each trumpet-like shaped face.
“He is risen,” shout the lilies,
Full of love, and truth, and grace.
“He is risen,” shout the lilies,
The Savior from on High.
“He is risen,” shout the lilies,
That man no more shall die!

You don’t hear the Easter lilies?
Just listen with your eyes.
Behold their matchless beauty,
And perhaps to your surprise
Your heart will hear the message
That deep within them lies!

Easter Lilies 

By Roselea Nellis 

 

As I gaze upon the lily
With its trumpet-like shaped face
It takes me to a different time…
It takes me to a different place.

It’s as if I hear it trumpeting
It’s message loud and clear,
He has risen from the dead…
He is no longer here!
