He Lives ~ hymn

Something we all need to remember during these trying times. Lines that really strike me and make me think – I see His hand of mercy. I hear His voice of cheer. And just the time I need Him He’s always near.

Am I being a part of making sure others see His hand of mercy or hear His voice of cheer? And I making sure those struggling remember that Jesus is near when you need Him? A time for me to consider my choices.

I serve a risen savior

He Lives (I Serve A Risen Savior)

words and music: A. H. Ackley (1933)

I serve a risen Savior,
He’s 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,
He’s always near.

He Lives!
He Lives!
Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and
Talks with me
Along life’s 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 word around me,
I see His loving care.
And tho my heart grows weary
I never will despair.
I know that He is leading,
Thru 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
Along life’s 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 loving,
So good and kind.

He Lives!
He Lives!
Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and
Talks with me
Along life’s narrow way.
He Lives!
He Lives!
Salvation to impart.
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart.

As you go through this continuing time of difficulty, whatever that looks like for you, remember – Jesus Lives! And He is there with you through it all. He rose from the grave, conquering sin and death and giving us hope of eternal life, even through time here on earth of great difficulty.

Our preacher has been talking about difficult times these last few Sundays and the timing of the lessons could not be better. It fits. These are difficult times and we can complicate them further with sin. But Jesus lives! And His living means I have a hope and a future. Praise God for that!

Blessings,
Lori, At Home.
