Easter Sermon of The Flowers
by Peter McArthur.
The Easter sermon of the flowers
Is best of all to know.
They hear the preaching of the showers
That speak the one word "Grow!"
They waited for that glad command
Through wintry storm and strife,
And now throughout the rousing
They stir and wake to life.
I, too, have watched and waited
for I was fain to learn
The word that wakes the birds to song
When life and joy return.
I, too, must grow and feel my heart
O'erflow with prayer and praise:
With birds and flowers must take my
And hymn the Easter days.
