Live Like His Son by As Sistas in Zion

There is a beautiful song in the LDS Children’s Hymn Book called He Sent His Son.

“How could the Father tell the world
of love and tenderness?
He sent His son, a newborn babe,
with peace and holiness.

How could the Father show the world
the pathway we should go?
He sent His Son, to walk with men
on earth that we may know.

How could the Father tell the world
of sacrifice, of death?
He sent his Son to die for us
and rise with living breath.

What does the Father ask of us?
What do the scriptures say?
Have faith, have hope, live like his Son,
help others on their way.

What does He ask? Live like his Son.”

What we love about this song is that it shows how much the Father sacrificed for us and how little he asks for in return. There are so many beautiful things that come along with celebrating the Easter holiday. Easter takes place in the Spring, when the earth is awakening from winter, blossoming and blooming with new life. Many of us get new dresses or suits, children’s laughter rings as they fill their baskets with beautiful pastel colored eggs. We all have many wonderful traditions that we partake in during Easter, but we mustn’t forget that Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of our Savior. We cannot forget the sacrifice that was made for each of us and all the Father asks in return is that we live as Jesus Christ would. This Easter, as we sistas don our hats and break our necks in the kitchen preparing beautiful Easter dinners, let's not forget to focus on the actions required to follow the Saviors example. The Lord loved us all so much that he gave his only begotten Son."Have faith, have hope, live like his Son, help others on their way.What does He ask? Live like his Son.”
