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
    Naught from us His love shall sever;
    Life, nor death, nor powers of hell
    Tear us from His keeping ever.
  5. Jesus lives! to Him the Throne
    Over all the world is given;
    We, in spirit with Him one,
    Rest and reign with Him in heaven.
