14035. Jésus Vit!

1 Jésus vit! tu ne saurais,
Tombe effrayer davantage.
Jésus vit! de tes arrêts,
O mort, es détruit l’outrage.

2 Jésus vit! et désormais
La mort du ciel est l’entrée;
Au lieu du trouble, la paix
Remplit mon âme assurée.

3 Jésus vit! sur une croix
Pour nous il donna sa vie;
Vivre avec lui, c’est mon choix,
Mon doux espoir, mon envie.

4 Jésus vit! tu ne pourras
Nous ravir à sa tendresse;
Fuis, Satan; car dans ses bras
C’est son amour qui nous presse.
