Sunday Morning Poetry


He Lives!

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 He 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.
~ Alfred H. Ackley (1887-1960)

Happy Easter, my friends, happy Easter.

Relyn - this is one of my most favorite hymns ever! Takes me back to childhood in the Nazarene church, the old men sining "He Lives" with strength and faith. Happiest of Easters to you!

I sang this as I read it, and it brought back very fond memories of singing beside the many faithful who have gone before me, leading the way to the Cross.
Thank you for the sweet reminder, Susan
