Easter Sunday - Hymn "He Lives"


Happy EASTER !!!

Please read:  He Is Risen and then listen to this hymn.

Today's feature song is "He Lives" by hymnist A.H. Ackley (1887-1960).  A young man asked Reverend Ackley: "Why should I worship a dead Jew?" and Ackley responded with a hearty:  "HE LIVES!!  I tell you, He is not dead but lives here and now!!  Jesus Christ is more alive today than ever before.  I can prove it by my own experience, as well as the testimony of countless thousands."  It was soon after this encounter that A.H. Ackley wrote and composed this hymn.  

Below the lyrics is a YouTube video of this glorious hymn - ENJOY!!

Turn with me to number 161 in your hymnals and let's sing:

He Lives
by A.H. Ackley(1887- 1960)
1.  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.
CHORUS
2.  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.
CHORUS
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
Chorus
He lives................He lives..............Christ Jesus lives today!
                 HE LIVES................HE LIVES............................................... 

He walks with me and talks with me along life's narrow way

He lives................He lives..............Salvation to impart!
HE LIVES................HE LIVES...................


You ask me how I know He lives?  He lives with-in my heart.
YOU ASK ME HOW I KNOW HE LIVES? HE LIVES WITH-IN MY HEART.





A special thanks to "Holding Onto Jesus" for posting this hymn on YouTube
