This April marks the 22nd anniversary of National Poetry Month, which was inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996. In honor of National Poetry Month, I’ll be sharing  30 of my favorite poems during the entire month of April.

Today’s Poem is by Nicole C. Mullen. Well…. It’s not really a poem – it’s a song, but I thought it would be a good reminder on this Easter Sunday. Enjoy!

Who taught the sun where to stand in the morning?

Who told the ocean you can only come this far?

Who showed the moon where to hide ’til evening?

Whose words alone can catch a falling star?

 

Well I know my Redeemer lives

I know my Redeemer lives

All of creation testify

This life within me cries

I know my Redeemer lives

 

The very same God that spins things in orbit

He runs to the weary, the worn and the weak

And the same gentle hands that hold me when I’m broken

They conquered death to bring me victory

 

Now I know my Redeemer lives

I know my Redeemer lives

Let all creation testify

Let this life within me cry

 

I know my Redeemer, He lives

To take away my shame

And He lives forever, I’ll proclaim

 

That the payment for my sin

Was the precious life He gave

But now He’s alive and

There’s an empty grave

 

Now I know my Redeemer lives

I know my Redeemer lives

Let all creation testify

Let this life within me cry

I know my Redeemer, He lives
