166. I Know That My Redeemer Lives

1 I know that my Redeemer lives:
O the sweet joy this sentence gives!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
He lives, He lives, who once was dead;
He lives, my everlasting Head.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

2 He lives, to bless me with His love,
And still He pleads for me above;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
He lives to raise me from the grave,
And me eternally to save.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

3 He lives, my kind, wise, constant Friend;
Who still will keep me to the end;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
He lives, and while He lives I'll sing,
Jesus, my Prophet, Priest and King.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

4 He lives my mansion to prepare,
And He will bring me safely there;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
He lives, all glory to His name,
Jesus, unchangeably the same.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Amen.
