1 I know that my Redeemer lives,
What comfort this sweet sentence gives!
He lives, he lives, who once was dead,
He lives, my everlasting Head.
2 He lives, triumphant from the grace,
He lives, eternally to save;
He lives exalted, throned above;
He lives to rule his church in love.
3 He lives and grants me rich supply,
He lives to guide me with his eye,
He lives to comfort me when faint,
He lives to hear my soul's complaint.
4 He lives to silence all my fears;
He lives to stop and wipe my tears,
He lives to calm my troubled heart,
he lives all blessings to impart.
5 He lives to bless me with his love;
he lives to plead for me above;
he lives my hungry soul to feed;
he lives to help in time of need.
6 He lives, my kind, wise, heavenly friend,
He lives and loves me to the end;
He lives, and while he lives I'll sing,
He lives my Prophet, Priest and King.
7 He lives and grants me daily breath,
He lives, and I shall conquer death,
He lives my mansion to prepare,
He lives to bring me safely there.
8 He lives all glory to his name,
He lives, my Savior, still the same;
what joy this blest assurance gives:
I know that my Redeemer lives.
