Walking is the perfect way of moving if you want to see into the life of things. It is the one way of freedom. If you go to a place on anything but your own feet you are taken there too fast, and miss a thousand delicate joys that were waiting for you by the wayside. Elizabeth von Arnim

He Lives

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 cheer,
And just the time I need Him
He's always near.

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.

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.

I liked the part in the Bible where one of the thieves that is crucified on the cross next to Jesus repents and gets saved at the last minute. : )
He sure cuts it close doesn't he? 
Luke 23: 39 - 43
And one of the malefactors which where hanged railed on him, saying, 
if thou be Christ, save thyself and us.

But the other answering rebuked him saying, 
Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?

And we indeed justly;
for we receive the due reward of our deeds:
but this man hath done nothing amiss.

And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

And Jesus, said unto him, Verily I say unto thee,  to day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

Happy Easter to you all.
Jesus Loves You.

Ha. I always thought the same thing about the repentant thief. He did cut it close. Hope you had a blessed Easter.

Many years ago I remember singing the chorus to 'He Lives' but never sang the verses. The tune instantly came back to me...
Thanks Karen, hope you had a wonderful Easter.
