Jesus lives, the broken tomb

Representative Text

1 Jesus lives! The broken tomb
Tells the resurrection story.
Joy has now dispelled the gloom;
Sealed His passion is with glory.
Lightning gleams, and mountains shiver,
He was dead, but lives forever.

2 I have won; the triumph's His!
Death is swallowed up in vict'ry!
Bound the Prince of Darkness is,
Free am I! O blessed myst'ry!
Mine is heaven fair and glorious,
Jesus won; I am victorious.
