Carrie E. Breck (1855–1934)


Now is life, death shall be no more!
Now is life, sor­row­ing is o’er!
Praise Him, praise Him!
Jesus is con­quer­or!
Christ who lives will His loved ones keep
Thro’ His pow­er, death is on­ly sleep;
Praise ye the Lord, praise ye the Lord,


Carry the tid­ings of glo­ry, love and joy;
Christ hath shown mer­cy to thou­sands,
Life He brings;
Death shall be vic­tor no more,
Nor shall de­stroy;
Jesus is vic­tor and Sav­ior, King of kings!

Now is life, dark­ness flees away!
Now is life, life and end­less day!
Love Him, love Him,
Jesus, the truth, the way.
Endless life all may now re­ceive;
Every heart who will now be­lieve;
Praise ye the Lord, praise ye the Lord,
Own His sway!


Now is life! let the na­tions know!
Now is life! Gos­pel tid­ings show!
Serve Him, serve Him;
Unto His loved ones go!
Tell them how Christ came for us to die,
Rose from death, reign­ing now on high;
Praise ye the Lord! Praise ye the Lord!
Praise the Lord!
