A Reflection on Resurrection.
“I am alive forever” Forever and forever!
This is the word he said; Oh fling it to the breeze,
In him there is no dying, To live with him forever,
In him there are no dead; Creator of the trees,
I am alive forever!- To paint with him the sunsets.
This is his word to me To visit with the stars,
Through season after season To flash across God’s highways
To live eternally. Beyond all earthly bars.
I am alive forever! I know not how the future
Oh tell it far and near; Shall change me or surprise,
No more can winter trouble But this will be my heaven,
Or autumn bring a tear. To look into his eyes,
I am alive forever! To hear again the promise
Let seasons go or stay, As he sweetly welcomes me
For Christ is mine forever, “Thou art alive forever,
Forever and a day. Alive eternally!”
(Ralph Spaulding Cushman)
