EASTER REVELATION, by            
First Line: No mortal yet knows how the white lily grows
Last Line: Life, and love never-failing and true.
Subject(s): Easter; Flowers; Holidays; Jesus Christ = Suffering & Sacrifice; Lilies; The Resurrection

No Mortal yet knows how the white lily grows
From a bulb to a beautiful flower;
And no one has known, though many times shown,
The secret of Life, or its hour.

No Mortal yet knows—so the story still goes—
When the World was created, or why.
Whether Man is a Soul with some definite goal
Is not proven—thus skeptics yet cry.

Yet Jesus Christ gave His life that the grave
Be robbed of its power over man.
While they fear to believe, lest the tale should deceive,
Easter lilies retell it again.

Every year they unfold, white, deep heart of gold;
His messengers keeping faith new.
A miracle sign each time of divine
Life, and Love never-failing and true.
