A speech is a wonderful way to express a thoughtful holiday sentiment to a group. Easter is one of the most important religious holidays of the year, and a number of speeches, poems, and messages have been composed in its honor.

Holidays like Easter are often not celebrated according to their original purpose—in Easter's case, that's to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He was crucified for our sins and then rose again on a day we now call Easter. Giving an Easter speech in His honor each year can make for a great family tradition and is also a wonderful idea for any church service or Sunday school congregation.

Below, find seven great prayers, poems, and speeches that are perfect for Easter. Some are geared toward a general audience and would be great for a church service or holiday gathering, while others are fit for a younger audience and would make a great addition to a family brunch or Sunday school service.

Easter Messages for Everyone

These first three Easter-themed speeches and poems are perfect for just about any audience. They would be lovely as pre-meal prayers for your holiday feast, but they can also be shared at church, on social media, or in holiday cards to loved ones.

1. The Cross Speech

It is no secret that Jesus was crucified upon a wooden cross for our sins then rose again to give us these eternal lives we are so thankful for. We should be especially thankful on Easter, as this occasion celebrates that sacrifice and the renewal it brings us every day.

We must keep our faith, praise Him, serve Him, and thank Him for all that He has done for us, for none of this would have been possible without His shedding of blood. See this wooden cross that stands behind me? Use it as you may. Lay your burdens down upon it and leave them there to stay.

We do not need to hold onto our burdens, as they’ve been crucified with our Christ. We gather in this holy sanctuary to receive His message. Today, that message is Happy Easter! What a blessing!

2. Easter, To You (Poem)

Easter comes but once a year,

How will you celebrate?

Will you keep Jesus on your mind

As you clear your plate?

Will you find those Easter eggs,

Those chocolates and jelly beans?

And will you stop to think about

your Almighty Heavenly King?

Think about what this all means

To have beautiful days like this,

All because Jesus died upon the cross

To cleanse us of our sins.

Come that special Sunday,

He arose from his crucifix.

All for the love of his fellow people

Who else would ever do this?

Our one and only, Jesus Christ.

Never forget what he went through

To bring this joyous Holiday,

Easter, to me and you.

3. Short Speech

As we all sit here smiling in great spirits on this great Easter day, let’s not forget why we are here, gathered together, to celebrate.

Recall all of the pain Jesus went through; think about the strength that it took to rise back from the dead. And now think about everything we have and everything we have to celebrate.

Thank Jesus for this day as we head into our meal, for it is because of him that we have everything, including each other.

Spring-blooming flowers remind us of the eternal renewal delivered to us by His sacrifice.

Easter Messages for Children

Why not get the youth involved in the fun? These short Easter messages are perfect for kids. They're simple, easy to remember, and fun to recite and listen to. They're great for Sunday school lessons, but they can also make a great addition to any at-home Easter celebration or family picnic.

4. Short Poem

Jesus is good, Jesus is great

Jesus died for us, oh, what a fate!

He rose again on this Easter Sunday

He loves us so much, so he gave us this fun day!

5. Cute Speech For a Young Child

I’m thankful for a Jesus that loves me, and he brings me chocolate and eggs on Easter! He died for our sins and came back to life to bring us chocolate for all eternity! I love Jesus! Amen!

6. Another Cute Speech

I always wondered why Jesus sends bunnies on Easter to deliver all of his gifts to every child in the world, and then it occurred to me—bunnies are like little pieces of heaven!

They are white and soft like the clouds of heaven, fast like our journey through life, and probably haven’t committed a sin in their lives, which makes them pure! And they eat healthy—very healthy.

I guess Jesus won’t have to worry about them eating all of the jelly beans. And I’m pretty sure they don’t like to eat eggs either. Hm. Anyway, happy Easter!

7. How to Spell Jesus

J is for Jesus

E is for esus

S is for sus

U is for us

S is for s?

What does that spell? Jesus!

Wait a minute . . . bunnies don't lay eggs!

Let Jesus Speak

When it comes to Easter speeches, you can almost forget the note cards. He will speak through you to deliver a special message if you let Him in. Let Him be your guide in the words you want to say, and the entire speech will fall into place! If you are the type with stage-fright, make sure you say a little prayer before you speak. Ask Jesus to guide you help you find the words to say—He will!

Have a happy and blessed Easter!
