Description

Jessie Pounds wrote this hymn for Easter following the pattern of Job 19:25 where Job asserts the promise that though he will die, he knows that he will see his Redeemer with his own eyes. "I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been thus destroyed, yet in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another." (Job 19:25-27). What a wonderful promise! The Lord will resurrect our bodies, reconstitute and repair them, and we will live for all eternity seeing our Redeemer with our own eyes. May the Lord give us faith to know that Jesus lives and will stand on the earth once again.

Lyrics

I know that my Redeemer liveth,
And on the earth again shall stand.
I know eternal life He giveth,
That grace and pow'r are in His hand.

Chorus:
I know, I know that Jesus liveth
And on the earth again shall stand;
I know, I know the life he giveth,
That grace and pow'r are in His hand.
I know, I know.

I know His promise is forever,
The Word He speaks, it cannot die!
I know that death will never sever
For I am His and He is mine!

I know who waits beyond the river,
That Where He is there I will be;
I know my Savior and Life-giver,
Restores my soul and pardons me.

Words by Jesse B. Pounds (1861-1921) & Craig Johnson. Music by Craig Johnson.
