Hymn/Song Information

Jesus lives thy terrors now Can O death




Jesus lives! thy terrors now
Can, O death, no more appal us;
Jesus lives! by this we know,
Thou, O grave, canst not enthral us.
Hallelujah!


Jesus lives! henceforth is death
But the gate of life immortal;
This shall calm our trembling breath,
When we pass its gloomy portal.
Hallelujah!


Jesus lives! for us He died;
Then, alone to Jesus living,
Pure in heart may we abide,
Glory to our Saviour giving.
Hallelujah!


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.
Hallelujah!


Jesus lives! to Him the throne
Over all the world is given:
May we go where He is gone,
Rest and reign with Him in heaven.
Hallelujah!


---Alternative verses---


Jesus lives! henceforth is death
Entrance-gate of life immortal;
This shall calm our trembling breath,
When we pass its gloomy portal.
Hallelujah!


Jesus lives! for us He died;
Hence may we, to Jesus living,
Pure in heart and act abide,
Praise to Him and glory giving.
Hallelujah!


Jesus lives! our hearts know well,
Naught from us His love shall sever;
Life, nor death, nor powers of hell,
Part us now from Christ for ever.
Hallelujah!


Jesus lives! to Him the throne
High o’er heaven and earth is given:
We may go where He is gone,
Live and reign with Him in heaven.
Hallelujah!
