Paul really wanted to write an Easter post today…but several things at the hosptial came up and he has been back and forth all day. We had a very encouraging Easter service and we sang one of my favorite hymns. Harry plays the piano very well and we all tried to belt it out as best we could.  I can still hear our choir director in our church growing up with his strong tenor leading all of us through this special song on Easter morning…I know for my family we hear John McClung, I am sure many of you hear some one special when you read the words to this song. Click here to sing along…

 

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.

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 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 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.

 

Lyrics and Composer: Alfred H. Ackley, 1933.
