Jesus, he lives, my sins are gone,
Hallelujah, he arose;
Jesus, he lives, he is the Son,
Jesus, he lives, he is the Lord,
He is, the Holy One;
Death is defeated, praise our God,
The victory’s been won.
Jesus, defied, and tasted death,
He walked into that tomb;
For him it held no fear or end,
Of life, it was the womb.
Jesus, he lives, he prays for us,
He pours his Spirit out;
Upon his people everywhere,
Removing sin and doubt.
Jesus, he lives, trust him today,
In him is full repose;
There is no other way to life,
Hallelujah, he arose!
(Tune: Belmont; CM)
