HE'S ALIVE - HE IS RISEN


According to Learn the Bible site http://www.learnthebible.org/

"Jesus Christ is higher than the mighty princes, kings and emperors of the earth, higher than heaven or angels, and yet humble and lowly in heart; therefore He is compared to the
Lily of the Valley, in His exaltations, as God very high; but in His humiliations, He seems to hang down His headThe Lily of the Valley (Convallaria Majalis) is a flower, so white and pure, with its fragrant bell-shaped flowers, followed by glossy red berries. It hangs down its head and has been cited in the Bible, Matthew 6:28-30 that mentions "Christ is the Lily of the Valley
and – Song 2:1 " I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys."
Easter is a day upon which Christians believe, "HE HAS RISEN"
Dolly Singing "He´s alive" at the 1989 CMA awards.
Lyrics: The gates and doors were barred And all the windows fastened down I spent the night in sleeplessness And rose at every sound Half in hop...


The gospel hymn, Lily of the Valley is sung by Friends in Faith Quartet, from their album 'Living in the Sunlight'

I have found a friend in Jesus,
He's everything to me,
He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul;
The Lily of the Valley, in Him alone I see
All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole.
In sorrow He's my comfort, in trouble He's my stay;
He tells me every care on Him to roll.
Refrain:
He's the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star,
He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.

Betsy,
I appreciate you stopping by and I will visit you again, It has been a most difficult April, my John ended up in the hospital on 3 different occasions. He is recuperating slowing, but each day he gets stronger.
