Easter poems, lyrics and Easter quotes for your card


Most glorious Lord of Lyfe! that, on this day,
Didst make Thy triumph over death and sin;
And, having harrowd hell, didst bring away
Captivity thence captive, us to win:
This joyous day, deare Lord, with joy begin;
And grant that we, for whom thou diddest dye,
Being with Thy deare blood clene washt from sin,
May live for ever in felicity!

And that Thy love we weighing worthily,
May likewise love Thee for the same againe;
And for Thy sake, that all lyke deare didst buy,
With love may one another entertayne!
So let us love, deare Love, lyke as we ought,
– Love is the lesson which the Lord us taught.

– Edmund Spenser


At Easter, nature awakens to new life, everything begins to blossom and green. So I wish you many warm rays of sunshine on your skin and in your heart, as well as happy holidays and a joyful celebration with colorful spring flowers.

Warm Easter greetings


Easter Wings

Lord, who createdst man in wealth and store,
Though foolishly he lost the same,
Decaying more and more,
Till he became
Most poore:
With thee
O let me rise
As larks, harmoniously,
And sing this day thy victories:
Then shall the fall further the flight in me.

My tender age in sorrow did beginne
And still with sicknesses and shame.
Thou didst so punish sinne,
That I became
Most thinne.
With thee
Let me combine,
And feel thy victorie:
For, if I imp my wing on thine,
Affliction shall advance the flight in me.

– George Herbert


Happy Easter.
Beautiful and relaxing Easter holidays
A hardworking Easter bunny
A beautiful and colorful beginning of spring
Many chocolate eggs
Sunny weather
And a nice time with the family
wish …


Lyrics for Happy Easter wishes

"Make your whole year’s plan in the spring and the whole day’s plan in the morning." – Chinese proverb

Unbelievable, but true! You’ve just gotten used to the new year and it’s already Easter again! But don’t stress, just keep the proverb in mind and just now leisurely start planning for the year….

Happy Easter and best regards


Easter Day

The silver trumpets rang across the Dome:
The people knelt upon the ground with awe:
And borne upon the necks of men I saw,
Like some great God, the Holy Lord of Rome.

Priest-like, he wore a robe more white than foam,
And, king-like, swathed himself in royal red,
Three crowns of gold rose high upon his head:
In splendour and in light the Pope passed home.

My heart stole back across wide wastes of years
To One who wandered by a lonely sea,
And sought in vain for any place of rest:
'Foxes have holes, and every bird its nest,
I, only I, must wander wearily,
And bruise my feet, and drink wine salt with tears.'

– Oscar Wilde


The Easter Flower

Far from this foreign Easter damp and chilly
My soul steals to a pear-shaped plot of ground,
Where gleamed the lilac-tinted Easter lily
Soft-scented in the air for yards around;

Alone, without a hint of guardian leaf!
Just like a fragile bell of silver rime,
It burst the tomb for freedom sweet and brief
In the young pregnant year at Eastertime;

And many thought it was a sacred sign,
And some called it the resurrection flower;
And I, a pagan, worshiped at its shrine,
Yielding my heart unto its perfumed power.

– Claude McKay

Happy Easter: Tips for Your Easter Wishes

Happy Easter: Tps for Your Easter Wishes

Below you’ll find helpful tips for wishing your loved ones a Happy Easter. Here’s how to find the right text for each person this year and avoid common mistakes.

Send Your Easter Mail on Time

As a rule, nothing is sent out on Good Friday and Easter Sunday. So get your Easter greetings to the post office on time and allow a few days for arrival.

Make sure your card or package reaches the recipient no later than Thursday. If you don’t want the person to open your Easter mail before then, write a note on it like "Easter Greetings" or "Do Not Open Before Easter."

Include a Personalized Touch

Especially if you’re adopting pre-written Easter sayings, it’s important to include a personalized touch. This could be a personal toast like "Dear [name]" or a short note about Easter plans – if you know them.

Also, you could put some nice stickers in an Easter card or even paint Easter motifs like a flower, Easter bunny or chick inside. It is even nicer if you formulate your Easter greetings in such a way that they fit the other person exactly.

This way, you give your significant other the feeling that he or she is not just part of a group message, but that you really put some thought and effort into it. This is a great sign of appreciation and nurtures your friendships.

Keep it Personal

Before you send your Easter sayings, you should always think about the personal relationship with the recipient. For example, funny sayings for Easter are not suitable for business contacts.

Your grandmother would surely be more pleased with a nice card and an Easter poem than with a message on her cell phone. Close friends and family members you can best assess and so probably judge well who would be happy about an idyllic and springtime saying and who can tolerate a funny saying.

Add a Small Gift

Add a Small Gift

Giving a little something for Easter is a nice gesture and rounds out your Easter wishes perfectly. This ranges from a small chocolate Easter bunny to Easter decorations to a bouquet of flowers.

Theoretically, you can give anything for Easter that suits the person. However, it is not usual to give huge gifts for this occasion. It cannot be compared to birthdays or Christmas.

Ideas for lovely little gifts are:

  • Keychain
  • Small flower vase with dried flowers
  • Porcelain Easter bunny, lamb, or chick
  • Scented candle
  • Homemade things (food or crafted things)
  • Bird house
Why we celebrate Easter

In Christianity, believers celebrate the resurrection of Jesus on Easter. According to the Bible, Maundy Thursday was the day of Jesus' last supper with his disciples.

On Good Friday, he was condemned to death and crucified. On Holy Saturday he was buried, but on Easter Sunday he rose again. Then, on Easter Monday, two disciples recognized him.

Easter thus reflects the victory of life over death and gives hope to believers. The beginning of spring and the blossoming of nature support this sentiment at Easter time.
