176. Jesus lives! thy terrors now

St. Albinus:

Henry J. Gauntlett, 1852


German; Christian F. Gellert, 1757;

Tr. Frances E. Cox, 1841;


Jesus lives! thy terrors now

Can no longer, death, appall 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:

May we go where he has gone,

Rest and reign with him in heaven.
