Representative Text

1 Now I know the great Redeemer,
Know he lives and spreads his fame;
Lives, and all the heav’ns adore him;
Lives, and earth resounds his name.

Soon shall I behold the Savior,
He who lives and reigns above,
Lives, and I shall live forever,
Live and sing redeeming love.

2 My Redeemer lives within me,
Lives, and heav’nly life conveys;
Lives, and glory now surrounds me;
Lives, and I his name shall praise. [Refrain]

3 Pardon, peace, and full salvation,
From my living Savior flow;
Light and life, and consolation,
All the good I e’er can know. [Refrain]
