Third Sunday in Easter

I know that my Redeemer lives!
What joy this blest assurance gives!
He lives, he lives, who once was dead;
he lives, my everliving head!

He lives to silence all my fears;
he lives to wipe away my tears;
he lives to calm my troubled heart;
he lives all blessings to impart.

He lives to grant me daily breath;
he lives, and I shall conquer death;
he lives, and while I live, I’ll sing;
he lives, my Prophet, Priest, and King!

He lives triumphant from the grave;
he lives eternally to save.
What joy this blest assurance gives:
I know that my Redeemer lives!

Praise God from whom all blessing flow;
praise him all him all creatures here below;
praise him above, ye heavenly host;
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!
