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. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Jesus lives, he bursts the grave

Jesus lives, he bursts the grave

Author: Johan N. Brun
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Jesus lives, He bursts the grave,
In His Godhead's power He riseth:
Now the surest proof we have
That His blood and death sufficeth.
Lightnings flash, earth quaking cleaveth,
Graves are opened--Jesus liveth.

2 I'm victorious since for me,
Jesus bound the foe to mortals,
Swallowed death in victory,
Opened wide the heavenly portals,
Gave to me a freedom glorious--
In the Lord I am victorious.
