I Serve A Risen Savior

I Serve A Risen Savior

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 world around me
  I see His loving care,
And though my heart grows weary,
  I never will despair;
I know that He is leading,
  Through all the stormy blast;
The day of His appearing
  Will come at last.

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.

-Alfred Henry Ackley (1187-1960)

"For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures" 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

"Jesus saith unto him,' I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6

"Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live." John 11:25 

May you have a blessed and beautiful Resurrection Sunday celebrating the miracle of new life in Christ! I am so grateful that He does live! That Jesus is with me every step of the way, that "He walks with me and talks with me.." What an amazing blessing!



  1. That is a hymn that we so enjoy singing. Thank you!

  2. YES!!! Happy Resurrection Day!!! :o)

  3. Yes!! Amen Sister!! And I mean sister as in sister in CHRIST! Praise the LORD for salvation for without the work of CHRIST on the cross, we would forever be separated from the LORD. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Eph. 2:8-9

    We love singing this hymn, and not just on Resurrection Day. As the second verse says, "The day of His appearing will come at last." Keep looking up, for I believe it will be soon that we will get to meet HIM in the air. Titus 2:13

    May you have a blessed Resurrection Day.
