One Sunday morning a pastor was dressing for church and had the radio on listening to a local church service. Suddenly he heard to minister say, "It’s Easter, and it doesn’t make any difference if Christ be risen or not..."

Shocked, A.H. Ackley shouted, "It’s a lie! He is risen!"

His wife said, "Why don’t you write a song about it?"

Reading in the gospels again "He is risen," and feeling God’s presence, he began writing. His words have been sung in churches every Easter since: "I serve a risen Savior, He’s in the world today, I know that He is living, whatever men may say...He Lives!"
