Hymn/Song Information

Now is eternal life If risen with Christ




Now is eternal life,
If risen with Christ we stand,
In him to life reborn,
And holden in his hand;
No more we fear death’s ancient dread,
In Christ arisen from the dead.


Man long in bondage lay,
Brooding o’er life’s brief span;
Was it, O God, for nought,
For nought, thou madest man?
Thou art our hope, our vital breath;
Shall hope undying in death?


And God, the living God,
Stooped down to man’s estate;
By death destroying death,
Christ opened wide life’s gate.
He lives, who died; he reigns on high;
Who lives in him shall never die.


Unfathomed love divine,
Reign thou within my heart;
From thee nor depth nor height,
Nor life nor death can part;
My life is hid in God with thee,
Now and through all eternity.
