Jesus is living, and reigneth on high,
Living, hosanna, the king of the sky;
Living, oh, glory, He’s living within,
Cleansing and keeping my heart free from sin.

Refrain

Blessing, hosanna, amen and amen,
Jesus once dying is living again;
Living, oh, glory, He’s living within,
Cleansing and keeping my heart free from sin.

Jesus is living, and gives life to all
Sore laden sinners, who come at His call;
Seeking His mercy, believing His word,
Trusting, they find Him, their live giving Lord.

Refrain

Jesus is living, He leadeth His own,
Giving them water that flows from the throne,
Manna, like dew drops each day from the sky,
Whoever eateth shall nevermore die.

Refrain

Jesus is living, His children may sing,
Whate’er of trial the coming days bring;
Nothing can harm them, His wing is spread wide,
O blessèd shelter where safe they abide.

Refrain

Jesus is living, and I shall live where
Loud hallelujahs resound thro’ the air;
Music ne’er ending in sorrow’s deep sigh,
Sorrow and sin have no home in the sky.

Refrain
