The Savior lives, no more to die

Representative Text

1 The Saviour lives, no more to die;
He lives, the Lord enthroned on high;
He lives triumphant o'er the grave;
He lives, eternally to save.

He lives, to wipe away their tears;
He lives, their mansions to prepare;
He lives, to bring them safely there.

3 Ye mourning souls, dry up your tears;
Dismiss your gloomy doubts and fears;
With cheerful hopes your heart revive,
For Christ the Lord is yet alive.

4 His saints he loves, and never leaves;
The contrite sinner he receives:
Abundant grace will he afford,
Till all are present with the Lord.
