1 Jesus lives! Thy terrors now
can, O death, no more appall us;
Jesus lives! By this we know
thou, O grave, canst not enthrall us.
2 Jesus lives! Henceforth is death
but the gate of life immortal;
this shall calm our trembling breath
when we pass its gloomy portal.
3 Jesus lives! For us he died,
then, alone to Jesus living,
pure in heart may we abide,
glory to our Savior giving.
4 Jesus lives! Our hearts know well
nought from us his love shall sever;
life, nor death, nor pow'rs of hell
tear us from his keeping ever.
|First Line:||Jesus lives! Thy terrors now|
