I Know that My Redeemer Lives
In the Word
“I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; I myself will see him with my own eyes — I, and not another.” Job 19:25–27a
Of the Word
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.
Inspired by words in Job 19, this Easter hymn reminds us that Christ has risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
Christ lives to bless us with His love, to forgive us, to guide us, to calm us, to wipe away our tears, and to silence our fears. In other words, our Savior, who died for us to release us from the stranglehold of sin, is alive and with us in every aspect of life. What a wonder … what a joy!
“He lives, all glory to His name! He lives, my Jesus, still the same; Oh, the sweet joy this sentence gives: I know that my Redeemer lives!”
Walking with my Lord
Living Redeemer, what joy the Good News of Your resurrection brings to me! Live on mightily in my heart and life so I may daily praise all You have done. In Your life-giving name I pray. Amen.
