1 Jesus has lived! and we would bring
The world’s glad thanks today;
And at His feet while anthems ring,
The grateful offering lay.
2 Jesus has lived! and His pure life
So perfect and sublime,
Shall conquer man’s dark sin and strife
Through every rank and clime.
3 Jesus has died! and o’er the stars
Gone home to God on high:
He burst the grave’s cold prison bars,
And said, "Man cannot die."
4 Jesus yet lives! and from the sky
Where victory He wrote,
Before the good man’s closing eye,
Visions of glory float.
5 Jesus yet lives! and oh! may we,
While in this valley dim,
So feel our immortality,
That we may be like Him.
