5 I Know That My Redeemer Lives 1. I know that my Redeemer lives. What comfort this sweet sentence gives! He lives, he lives, who once was dead. He lives, my ever-living Head. He lives to bless me with his love. He lives to plead for me above. He lives my hungry soul to feed. He lives to bless in time of need. 2. He lives to grant me rich supply. He lives to guide me with his eye. He lives to comfort me when faint. He lives to hear my souls complaint. He lives to silence all my fears. He lives to wipe away my tears. He lives to calm my troubled heart. He lives all blessings to impart.

6 3. He lives, my kind, wise heavnly Friend. He lives and loves me to the end. He lives, and while he lives, Ill sing. He lives, my Prophet, Priest, and King. He lives and grants me daily breath. He lives, and I shall conquer death. He lives my mansion to prepare. He lives to bring me safely there. 4. He lives! All glory to his name! He lives, my Savior, still the same. Oh, sweet the joy this sentence gives: I know that my Redeemer lives! He lives! All glory to his name! He lives, my Savior, still the same. Oh, sweet the joy this sentence gives: I know that my Redeemer lives! Text: Samuel Medley, 1738–1799. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, Music: Lewis D. Edwards, 1858–1921

30 In Ether 12:6 we read: 6 And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; I would show unto the world that a faith is things which are b hoped for and c not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no d witness until after the e trial of your faith.

31 What things would you like to see that you havent? How do you know that they exist? For example, Can you see air? How do you know air is there? Even though we have not seen Jesus Christ with our own eyes, how do we know that he lives? What does it mean to have faith in Jesus Christ? – To have a strong enough belief in Jesus Christ that we obey him and seek to become like him.

32 What are some ways Jesus Christ can help you if you have faith in him? – He can give you comfort – Direction – Peace – Strength – healing

33 The Scriptures teach us about many people who received great blessings and performed miracles because of their faith in Jesus Christ. This is what our lesson is about today.

34 LESSON 43: Moroni Teaches Faith in Jesus Christ

35 Jesus Christ said, If ye will have faith in me, ye shall have power to do whatsoever thing is expedient in me As we discussed earlier, we can know that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen. We should not dispute what we can not see, for we will receive no witness until after the trial of our faith.

36 As we have discussed in previous lessons, by having faith in our heavenly father and in Jesus, when we humble ourselves before them, they will make us strong, they will bless us with the talents needed based on our faith. When we need our heavenly fathers help, how should we ask of it? – In Prayer We have been told, Whatsoever thing ye shall ask the Father in my name, which is good, in faith believing that ye shall receive, behold, it shall be done unto you.
