1 Jesus lives! Your terrors now
can, O death, no more appal us:
Jesus lives! by this we know
you, O grave, cannot enthral us:
Alleluia!

2 Jesus lives! henceforth is death
but the gate of life immortal;
this shall calm our trembling breath
when we pass its gloomy portal:
Alleluia!

3 Jesus lives! for us he died:
then, alone to Jesus living,
pure in heart may we abide,
glory to our saviour giving:
Alleluia!

4 Jesus lives! this bond of love
neither life nor death shall sever,
powers below, around, above
tear us from his keeping never:
Alleluia!

5 Jesus lives! to him the throne
over all the world is given;
may we go where he is gone,
rest and reign with him in heaven:
Alleluia!
