Hymn Devotions Day 10 – I Know That My Redeemer Liveth


DAY 10 – I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVETH 

Taken from the words of Job the Wise, the title of this hymn says it all. Because Jesus lives, we have assurance of eternal life. What sets Jesus apart from all other religious teachers is that He rose from the dead, proving Himself to be God.

One day, he is coming back to judge the living and the dead. He will come back to earth to redeem His own and to destroy both our adversary and death itself.

Jesus has promised us that when we die we will go to be with Him in paradise. This gives great assurance and hope to all believers when they stand at death’s doorway. We face the grave with joy, not terror. For us, death has lost its sting and becomes a transition from one home to another. That is why, although we grieve in sorrow for a loved one who has died, we do not mourn as one without hope. We know that we will see our fellow believers again and fellowship with them forever.

Grace and power are definitely in His hand. Power to conquer death. Power to judge all men. Power to traverse the universe. Grace is His to bestow on His children, those who believe in Him for salvation. What a wonderful Savior is Jesus our Lord.

 

Thank you, Lord, for the testimony of Scripture, of the eyewitness accounts of the Resurrected Christ. By this we know and are assured of the conquering of death by Your hand. What a wonderful truth to cling to – You live and are coming back for us. 

 

I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVETH by Jesse Pounds

 

I know that my Redeemer liveth

And on the earth again shall stand

I know eternal life He giveth

That grace and power are in His hand

 

I know His promise never faileth

The Word He speaks, it cannot die

Though cruel death, my flesh assaileth

Yet I shall see Him by and by

 

I know my mansion, He prepareth

That where He is, there I may be

O wondrous thought, for me He careth

And He at last will come for me

 

REFRAIN:

 

I know, I know, that Jesus liveth

And on the earth, again shall stand

I know, I know, that life He giveth

That grace and power are in His hand
