Hymn Lyrics : He Lives

He lives - Jesus lives within our hearts. Every Christian who abides in Him knows that we do not need to demonstrate the evidence and existence of God by evidence or argument. We know Him, the Savior of our soul.

We know that He is with us; guiding us through life journey and with this knowledge, we sing His song even when trials beset us.

What a glorious day it is to believe in Him! - to know that He walks beside us and converse with us every step of the way. To have His mighty hands guiding and shielding us from all attacks of the evil one and to know that we are safe under His everlasting arms.

I want to sing this song every morning; to walk into the new day in celebration of all that this truth meant. Let praise and adore Him for our Redeemer lives and cares deeply for us .

He Lives

Lyrics ~ Alfred H. Ackley, 1887 - 1960

Music ~ Alfred H. Ackley, 1887 - 1960

Stanza 1:

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.

Stanza 2:

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, thro' all the stormy blast;

The day of His appearing will come at last.


Stanza 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.

Let's Live For Jesus!

Jesus died and rose again! He died for us - to bring us into fellowship with God. He rose from the dead and now lives forever within the hearts of all Christian. To explain how we know? Not easy! Because it is an experience.

The Bible said, "O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalm 34:8"

You need to invite Jesus into your heart to live in and with you today. Just invite Him by asking!

"Jesus Christ, you are alive today. I need you and invite you into my life and heart. Come live within me and guide me to live my life for you. Amen."

What a glorious beginning as you put your trust in Jesus and take refuge in Him! Jesus will never fails you nor will He forsakes you. He will be with you always - your companion for life. Yes, He walks with you and talks with you along life's narrow way. Meditate on this great wonderful Christian hymn again and again until joy overflows in your spirit and you know that Jesus lives in you.

Let us stand up for Him today! Live for Jesus and Jesus alone!
