He Lives!

March 30, 2010 1 By Lori

Yesterday, I talked about how Jesus died for our sins – He took the penalty for our sins….  Do you know that Jesus did NOT stay dead – He arose from the dead 3 days later.  This weekend we celebrate Easter – but do you know the true meaning of this day???  It is to celebrate Jesus’ triumph over death!!!  He is no longer dead….  He Lives….

Have you heard this song?

He Lives
Lyrics & Music Alfred H. Ackley; 1887-1960

Stanza 1:
I serve a risen Saviour; 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.

Chorus:
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.

Stanza 2:
In all the world around me I see His loving care,
And though 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.

Stanza 3:
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.

Chorus:
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.

I rejoice that HE LIVES!!!
