Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

Jesus Lives, and Jesus Leads

Representative Text

1 Jesus lives, and Jesus leads;
Though the way be dreary,
Morn to darkest night succeeds:
Courage, then, ye weary.
Still the faithful Shepherd feeds;
Jesus lives, and Jesus leads.

Jesus lives, and Jesus leads:
Courage, then, ye weary.

2 All the words He ever spoke,
Still to us He speaketh;
All the bread he ever broke,
Still for us He breaketh.
Still the faithful Shepherd feeds;
Jesus lives, and Jesus leads. [Refrain]

3 Jesus lives, and ev'ry grace
Comes because He giveth;
Life and love in ev'ry place
Live, for Jesus liveth.
All our thoughts His love exceeds;
Jesus lives, and Jesus leads. [Refrain]

4 Yes, if Jesus lives, He leads;
He will not forsake us;
He will crown His gracious deeds,
And to glory take us.
Till that hour the Shepherd feeds;
Jesus lives, and Jesus leads. [Refrain]
