Christian F. Gellert

Jesus lives, and so shall I.
     Death! thy sting is gone forever:

Jesus lives, and so shall I.
     Death! thy sting is gone forever:
He, who deigned for me to die,
     Lives, the bands of death to sever.
He shall raise me with the just:
Jesus is my Hope and trust.

Jesus lives and reigns supreme;
     And, His kingdom still remaining,
I shall also be with Him,
     Ever living, ever reigning.
God has promised; be it must:
Jesus is my Hope and Trust.

Jesus lives, and God extends
     Grace to each returning sinner;
Rebels He receives as friends,
     And exalts to highest honor.
God is true as He is Just;
Jesus is my Hope and trust.

Jesus lives, and by His grace,
     Victory o’er my passions giving,
I will cleanse my heart and ways,
     Ever to His glory living.
The weak He raises from the dust:
Jesus is my Hope and Trust.

Jesus lives, and I am sure
     Naught shall e’er from Jesus sever,
Satan’s wiles, and Satan’s power,
     Pain or pleasure—ye shall never!
Christian armor can not rust:
Jesus is my Hope and trust.

Jesus lives, and death is now
     But my entrance into glory.
Courage! Then, my soul, for thou
     Hast a crown of life before thee;
Thou shat find thy hopes were just—
Jesus is the Christian’s Trust.
