Jesus Lives Thy Terrors Now Lyrics
Suggested uses include Easter, Lent and Funeral services.
1. Jesus lives! thy terrors now
Can, O death, no more appal us;
Jesus lives! by this we know
Thou, O grave, canst not enthral us.
2. Jesus lives! henceforth is death
But the gate of life immortal:
This shall calm our trembling breath,
When we pass its gloomy portal.
3. Jesus lives! for us he died;
Then, alone to Jesus living,
Pure in heart may we abide,
Glory to our Saviour giving.
4. 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.
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.
- Meter: 78 78 and Alleluia.
- German Original “Jesus lebt, mit ihm auch ich” by Christian Fürchtegott Gellert (1715 – 1769), translated by Francis Elizabeth Cox (1812 – 1897). Public Domain.
