    Verse 1
    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.

    Verse 2
    Jesus lives! henceforth is death
    Entrace-gate of life immortal;
    This shall calm our trembling breath,
    When we pass its gloomy portal.

    Verse 3
    Jesus lives! for us He died;
    Hence may we, to Jesus living,
    Pure in heart and act abide,
    Praise to Him and glory giving.

    Verse 4
    Jesus lives! our hearts know well
    Nought from us His love shall sever;
    Life, nor death, nor powers of hell
    Part us now from Christ for ever.

    Verse 5
    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.
