1 Now is life, death shall be no more!
Now is life, sorrowing is o’er!
Praise Him, praise Him!
Jesus is conqueror!
Christ who lives will His loved ones keep
Thro’ His power, death is only sleep;
Praise ye the Lord, praise ye the Lord,
Evermore!

Refrain:
Carry the tidings of glory, love and joy;
Christ hath shown mercy to thousands,
Life He brings;
Death shall be victor no more,
Nor shall destroy;
Jesus is victor and Savior, King of kings!

2 Now is life, darkness flees away!
Now is life, life and endless day!
Love Him, love Him,
Jesus, the truth, the way.
Endless life all may now receive;
Ev’ry heart who will now believe;
Praise ye the Lord, praise ye the Lord,
Own His sway! [Refrain]

3 Now is life! let the nations know!
Now is life! Gospel tidings show!
Serve Him, serve Him;
Unto His loved ones go!
Tell them how Christ came for us to die,
Rose from death, reigning now on high;
Praise ye the Lord! Praise ye the Lord!
Praise the Lord! [Refrain]
