Kristus lever — underbara ord

Representative Text

1. Kristus lever — underbara ord!
som förvandlar tungt och sorgset mod.
Väl är mörkret stort här på vår jord,
men se, Kristus lever.

2. Kristus lever, trogne Frälsaren,
som på jorden var de svagas vän.
Samma milda hjärta har han än.
Herren Kristus lever.

3. Han är livet, vi ock leva får.
Om än genom dödens flod vi går,
skall det bli vår segersång ändå:
Herren Kristus lever.
