Son-Day: "I Believe In Christ

I Believe In Christ

1. I believe in Christ; He is my King!
With all my heart to Him I’ll sing;
I’ll raise my voice in praise and joy,
In grand amens my tongue employ.
I believe in Christ; He is God’s Son.
On earth to dwell His soul did come.
He healed the sick; the dead He raised.
Good works were His; His name be praised.

2. I believe in Christ; oh blessed name!
As Mary’s Son He came to reign
’Mid mortal men, His earthly kin,
To save them from the woes of sin.
I believe in Christ, who marked the path,
Who did gain all His Father hath,
Who said to men: “Come, follow me,
That ye, my friends, with God may be.”

3. I believe in Christ—my Lord, my God!
My feet He plants on gospel sod.
I’ll worship Him with all my might;
He is the source of truth and light.
I believe in Christ; He ransoms me.
From Satan’s grasp He sets me free,
And I shall live with joy and love
In His eternal courts above.

4. I believe in Christ; He stands supreme!
From Him I’ll gain my fondest dream;
And while I strive through grief and pain,
His voice is heard: “Ye shall obtain.”
I believe in Christ; so come what may,
With Him I’ll stand in that great day
When on this earth He comes again
To rule among the sons of men.

....Happy Easter to you and yours....

"Easter is the celebration of the free gift of immortality given to all men, restoring life and healing all wounds. Though all will die as part of the eternal plan of growth and development, nevertheless we can all find comfort in the Psalmist’s statement, “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” (Ps. 30:5.)."

--Howard W. Hunter, "An Apostle’s Witness of the Resurrection", Ensign, May 1986, 15

I hope your Easter was wonderful! We got tons of rain last night, so it was a muddy mess for hunting, but the weather was bright and sunny today.
