    Let Us Pray

    I love Jesus and Jesus loves

    me. I want to be with Him

    every day, so let us pray.

    Repent and say, “I want to be

    with Him someday.”

    Tina Stephenson, age 10,
    Cleveland, Tennessee

    He Needed Love

    “I love you,” Mary said on that joyous day,

    When in her arms Jesus lay.

    He looked so small, as small as moss.

    He needed love to die on the cross.

    He died for us and only for us,

    And did it all without a fuss.

    Sarah Hogan, age 9,

    Christ’s Gift

    I cannot believe that Christ

    Would be crucified for me,

    Upon the wooden cross

    On the hill of Calvary.

    He taught and healed and prayed.

    And Pilate made a fuss.

    Then the greatest thing Christ did

    Was to be crucified for us.

    Jesus

    Jesus is our beloved Savior.

    He helps us and guides us in

    every way. I hope I will live

    with Him someday.

    Christian LaBarbera, age 9,
    Dallas, Texas

    Jesus Is Love

    His Father let Him die for us.

    Jesus died for us and did

    many other things. He has a

    power like God. But best of all

    He loves us.

    Anna Graff, age 9,
    Sandy, Utah

    So We Might Live

    Jesus rose on Easter Day

    To live in Heavenly Father’s way.

    So when you think of Easter,

    Think not of eggs, rabbits, and kin.

    Let us think of Christ the Savior,

    Who died so we might live again.
