Inspired by . . . Hymns of Faith: He Lives!

He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. Matthew 28:6


"Why should I worship a dead Jew?"

Such was the question asked of Alfred H. Ackley by a sincere young Jew who was attending Ackley's evangelistic meetings in the early '30's.

"He lives! I tell you. He is not dead but lives here and now!" was Ackley's emphatic response. The experience led him to write the words and composition of what is still today a favorite hymn among evangelical congregations.

The gospel-style tune assures that this hymn will stay with you long after the singing is done. And so it should!

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.

Of all the songs to have stuck in your mind, this is one of the best! You're welcome.
