He lives that great Creator lives What joy the




He lives—the great Redeemer lives;
What joy the blest assurance gives!
And now before His Father, God,
|: Pleads the full merit of His blood. :|


Repeated crimes awake our fears,
And justice armed with frowns appears,
But in the Saviour’s lovely face
|: Sweet mercy smiles, and all is peace. :|


Hence, then, ye black, despairing thoughts!
Above our fears, above our faults;
His powerful intercessions rise,
|: And guilt recedes, and terror dies. :|


Great Advocate, Almighty Friend!
On Thee do all our hopes depend:
Our cause can never, never fail,
|: For Thou dost plead, and must prevail. :|


In every dark, distressing hour,
When sin and Satan join their power,
Let this blest truth repel each dart,
|: That Thou dost bear us on Thy heart. :|
