Lyrics

He died to show His bound­less love,
Our glo­ri­ous Re­deem­er;
He lives to plead for us above,
Our glo­ri­ous Re­deem­er.
Let ev­ery heart be glad and gay,
For sor­row’s night has passed away;
A light di­vine He brings to­day,
Our glo­ri­ous Re­deem­er.

Refrain

He lives tri­um­phant ev­er­more,
Whom ang­els bright in Heav’n adore;
Come sound His praise from shore to shore,
Our glo­ri­ous Re­deem­er.

He rose to give us life anew,
Our glo­ri­ous Re­deem­er;
He makes His bless­èd pro­mise true,
Our glo­ri­ous Re­deem­er.
No more with hope­less grief we weep,
For death is not an end­less sleep;
His faith­ful ones He’ll safe­ly keep,
Our glo­ri­ous Re­deem­er.

Refrain

We’ll praise Him thro’ eter­n­ity,
Our glo­ri­ous Re­deem­er;
O’er death He gained the vic­to­ry,
Our glo­ri­ous Re­deem­er.
Redeemed by His un­fail­ing grace,
Sometime we’ll see Him face to face,
In Hea­ven’s high and ho­ly place,
Our glo­ri­ous Re­deem­er.
