Jesus lives! thy terrors now

CGS No.: 

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.
