288. Jesus Lives and So Shall I

1 Jesus lives, and so shall I.
Death! thy sting is gone forever.
He who deigned for me to die,
Lives, the bands of death to sever.
He shall raise me with the just:
Jesus is my Hope and Trust.

2 Jesus lives, and reigns supreme;
And, His kingdom still remaining;
I shall also be with Him,
Ever living, ever reigning.
God has promised: be it must;
Jesus is my Hope and Trust.

3 Jesus lives, I know full well,
Naught from Him my heart can sever:
Life nor death nor pow'rs of hell,
Joy nor grief, hence forth forever.
None of all His saints is lost;
Jesus is my Hope and Trust.

4 Jesus lives, and death is now
But my entrance into glory.
Courage, then, my soul, for thou
Hast a crown of life before thee;
Thou shalt find thy hopes were just;
Jesus is the Christian's Trust.
