Lyrics:Christian F. Gellert, tr. by Elizabeth Cox and others

This hymn has a unique tune.


Jesus lives! thy terrors now

Can, O Death, no more apall us;

Jesus lives! by this we know

Thou, O Grave, canst not enthrall us.



Jesus lives! henceforth 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 Savior giving.



Jesus lives! our hearts know well

Naught from us His love shall sever;

Life, nor death, nor powers of hell

Tear us from His keeping ever.



Jesus lives! to Him the Throne

Over all the world is given;

We, in spirit with Him one,

Rest and reign with Him in heaven.
