English Hymn 52
Jesus lives! thy terrors now
Canst O death, no more appall us;
Jesus lives by this we know
Thou, O grave, canst not enthral us.
Jesus lives! hence forth is death
But the gate of life immortal;
This shall calm our trembling breath
When we pass its gloomy portal.
Jesus lives! for us He died;
Then alone to Jesus living,
Pure in heart may we abide,
Glory to our Saviour giving.
Jesus lives! our hearts know well
Nought from us His love shall sever;
Life, nor death, nor powers of hell
Part us from His keeping ever.
Jesus lives! to Him the throne
High o’er h’ven and earth is given;
May we go where He is gone,
Rest and reign with Him in heaven.
