Everlasting life!
Is the pro­mise giv’n un­to them
Who love the Sav­ior dear.
Everlasting life!
And a home in Heav’n,
If you will be­lieve His name.


Then be­lieve Him! O re­ceive Him!
Blessèd Sav­ior, king­ly fa­vor.
Give Him ev­er best en­dea­vor,
For with Him is ev­er­last­ing life!

Everlasting life!
Shout it far and wide,
Blessèd tid­ings of sal­va­tion free.
Everlasting life!
Thro’ His blood ap­plied,
To the sin­ner in his woe.


Everlasting life!
There is naught to do but to take
The words He gives you now.
Everlasting life!
Precious gift for you,
Thro’ the Sav­ior cru­ci­fied.
