The I’m just sayin… Hymn of the Week
This song, also known in some hymnals as I Serve a Risen Savior, was composed in 1933 by Alfred Henry Ackley. It might not be as well known as the other songs I’ve posted about so far, but I think it’s a great one. For my money, Alan Jackson sings a pretty good version of this song. I would send you to Wikipedia, but they don’t really have much for this one…
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
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.
