What comfort this sweet sentence gives!
He lives, he lives, who once was dead;
He lives, my ever living head!
He lives eternally to save;
He lives exalted, throned above;
He lives to rule his Church in love.
He lives to guide me with his eye;
He lives to comfort me when faint;
He lives to hear my soul’s complaint.
He lives to wipe away my tears;
He lives to calm my troubled heart;
He lives all blessings to impart.
He lives to plead for me above;
He lives my hungry soul to feed;
He lives to help in time of need.
He lives and loves me to the end;
He lives, and while he lives, I’ll sing;
He lives, my Prophet, Priest, and King!
He lives, and I shall conquer death;
He lives my mansion to prepare;
He lives to bring me safely there.
He lives, my savior, still the same;
What joy this blest assurance gives:
I know that my Redeemer lives!
