I know that my redeemer lives!

I know that my redeemer lives.
What comfort this sweet sentence gives!
He lives, he lives who once was dead.
He lives, my ever living Head.
He lives to bless me with his love.
He lives to plead for me above.
He lives, my hungry soul to feed.
He lives, to bless in time of need.

He lives to grant me rich supply.
He lives to guide me with his eye.
He lives to comfort me when faint.
He lives to hear my soul's complaing.
He lives to silence all my fears.
He lives to wipe away my tears.
He lives to calm my troubled heart.
He lives all blessings to impart.

He lives, my kind, wise heavenly Friend.
He lives and loves me to the end.
He lives, and while He lives, I'll sing.
He lives, my Prophet, Priest and King.
He lives and grants me daily breath.
He lives, and I shall conquer death.
He lives my mansion to prepare.
He lives to bring me safely there.

He lives! All glory to His name!
He lives! My Saviour, still the same.
Oh, sweet the joy, this sentence gives;
"I know that my Redeemer Lives!"
He lives! All glory to His name!
He lives! My Saviour, still the same.
Oh, sweet the joy this sentence gives;
"I know, that my Redeemer lives!"

I believe in Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the World and Redeemer of all mankind. In a world of increasing uncertainty, there is an eternal truth that we can all cling to. We have a Heavenly Father who loves and knows each one of us by name. He sent His son, Jesus Christ to earth, to pay a price for our redemption. He is our rock. He is our strength. He is our salvation. He is my comfort and the focus of my faith. He is everything to me. He is the greatest man who ever walked the earth, and who ever will walk the earth. I believe in all that He said, in all that He did, and in all that He does and will do. He is the Head of our church. He is our exemplar in all things. He died on the cross and He rose again so that we, too, might rise again in Heavenly splendour. He lives. I do not need to put my hand in his side or to feel the imprints of the nails in His hands to know that this is true, for He has touched my life and my heart, and changed it for the better. I believe in Him. I declare His divinity. I love Him. He lives. He is the living Son of the living God, and I look forward to the day when I can kneel at His feet when He welcomes me home. With all my heart, I know these things to be true. There is no doubt in my mind. I know that my redeemer lives.
