My Commonplace Book... I Serve a Risen Savior or He Lives

I am going to post favorite Hymns and a little bit about them every Sunday or so.  My first one I posted was "The Old Rugged Cross". Today's song is: "I Serve a Risen Savior or He Lives" by  Alfred Henry Ackley

"Alfred Ackley (1887-1960) showed musical promise at a very young age. His father gave him the benefit of his musical wisdom, and then later sent him to study at the Royal Academy of Music in London. He played the piano and cello and showed great promise as a composer. After his training in music, Ackley went on to graduate from Westminster Theological Seminary in Maryland, and was ordained as a Presbyterian minister. He served as pastor in several states of the United States, and worked for a few years with evangelist Billy Sunday and the Rodeheaver Music Company. Ackley's musical endeavors were so appreciated that he was awarded an honorary Doctor of Sacred Music degree by John Brown University in Arkansas."

1.     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.
                           Refrain:
                   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. 
2.     In all the world around me I see His loving care,
        And tho’ 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.
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.

 "I Serve a Risen Savior or He Lives" by  Alfred Henry Ackley

Here is the link for a video for this song:

and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living One among the dead? He is not here, but He has [a]risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee, ~ Luke 24:5-6 NASB
