He Lives


"God loves us not because of who we are, but because of who He is."

March 31, 2015
David C. Egner

In just a few short days, Christians around the world will be celebrating Easter.  
A time to remember not only what Jesus did for us on the cross through His death, but that on the third day, he arose from the dead!

He is risen! 


He Lives
Alfred Henry Ackley
1887-1960

I serve a risen Savior, Hes in the world today;

I know that He is living, whatever men may say;
I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer, And just the time I need Him, Hes always near.


He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me
A-long lifes narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart.



In all the world around me I see His loving care,
And tho my heart grows weary, I never will despair;
I know that He is leading thro all the stormy blast,
The day of His appearing will come at last.
He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me
A-long lifes narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart.



Rejoice, Rejoice, O Christian, lift up your voice and sing
Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ the King!
The Hope of all who seek Him, the Help of all who find,
None other is so living, so good and kind.



He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me
A-long lifes narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart.


Have a blessed day my friends,
Heather

  1. I sang right along with this out loud. So much music is "modern" now that I really have missed this one. Thank you and God bless you and your family!

  6. Hi Heather,

    Beautiful photo. Our Greek Orthodox Easter is a week later. It is, indeed, a time of great joy, for He is Risen.

    Wishing you a very Happy Easter!
