ALBINUS by Henry John Gauntlett (1805-1876)Key signature: C major (no sharps or flats)Meter: 184.108.40.206.4.Public Domain1. Jesus lives! thy terrors now Can, O Death, no more appall us; Jesus lives! by this we know Thou, O Grave, canst not enthrall us. Hallelujah!2. Jesus lives! henceforth is death But the gate of Life immortal; This shall calm our trembling breath, When we pass its gloomy portal. Hallelujah!3. Jesus lives! for us He died; Then alone to Jesus living, Pure in heart may we abide, Glory to our Savior giving. Hallelujah!4. Jesus lives! our hearts know well Naught from us His love shall sever; Life, nor death, nor pow’rs of hell Tear us from His keeping ever. Hallelujah!5. Jesus lives! to Him the Throne Over all the world is given; We, in spirit with Him one, Rest and reign with Him in heaven. Hallelujah!
