HE LIVES –Alfred H. Ackley, 1933 (# 310 UMH)
I serve a risen Savior, He’s in the world today. I know that He is living, whatever foes 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), 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), 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 storm blast; the day of His appearing will come at last !!
Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian, lift up your voice and sing eternal hallelujas 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 !!
HAPPY THE HOME WHERE GOD IS THERE–Henry Ware, Jr. 1846 (# 445 UMH)
Happy the home when God is there, and love fills every breast;
When one their wish, and one their prayer, and one their heavenly rest.
Happy the home where Jesus’ Name is sweet to every ear;
Where children early speak His fame, and parents hold him dear.
Happy the home where prayer is heard, and praise is wont to rise;
Where parents love the sacred Word and all its wisdom prize.
Lord, let us in our homes agree this blessed peace to gain;
Unite our hearts in love to Thee, and love to all will reign.
