Representative Text

1 Sing, ye people, loud and high,
Jesus lives forever!
He is Lord of earth and sky,
To his people ever nigh;
We must suffer, we must die,
But Jesus lives forever.

2 Come, ye people, here is rest—
Jesus lives forever;
As the birds return to nest,
Souls find answer to their quest
Leaning on his welcome breast,
Our Jesus lives forever.

3 Pray, ye people, night and day,
Jesus lives forever;
Mountains, nations may decay,
Golden thrones become as clay,
Art and science pass away,
But Jesus lives forever.

4 Hope, ye people, fear no doom,
Jesus lives forever;
Sunlight glints o’er pain and gloom,
Faith will triumph, though we soon
Touch the shadow of the tomb,
For Jesus lives forever.
