I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.@John 11:25

Christ has conquered death forever,
Hallelujah, sing His praise.
Nothing from His love shall sever,
Hallelujah, sing His praise.

Refrain

Hallelujah, sing His praises,
Life, eternal life, He gives;
We shall reign with Him forever,
We shall live because He lives.

Earth and air, and heaving ocean,
Show His wondrous power and might;
Rending rocks, in wild commotion,
Show His wondrous power and might.

Refrain

Flowers in tender beauty growing,
Tell the story o’er and o’er;
Sheaves that ripen after sowing,
Tell the story o’er and o’er.

Refrain

Jesus lives, o’er death victorious;
Shout His praises evermore;
We shall see His face all glorious,
Shout His praises evermore.

Refrain
