Jesus lives! Thy terrors now


Jesus lives! Thy terrors now

Can no longer, death, appall us;

Jesus lives! by this we know

Thou, O Grave, canst not enthrall us.



Jesus lives; henceforth is death

But the gate of life immortal;

This shall calm our trembling breath

When we pass its gloomy portal.



  1. Jesus lives; for us he died;

Then, alone to Jesus living,

Pure in heart may we abide,

Glory to our Saviour giving.



  1. Jesus lives; our hearts know well

Nought from us his love shall sever;

Life, nor death, nor powers of hell

Tear us from his keeping ever.



  1. Jesus lives; to him the throne

Over all the world is given:

May we go where He has gone,

Rest and reign with Him in heaven.

Alleluia! Amin.
