115 (L.M.) Samuel Medley

I know that my Redeemer lives

What comfort this sweet sentence gives!

He lives, he lives, who once was dead,

He lives, my ever-living Head.

He lives to bless me with his love;

He lives to plead my cause above;

He lives my hungry soul to feed;

He lives to help in time of need.

He lives to give me full supplies;

He lives to bless me with his eyes;

He lives to comfort me when faint;

He lives to hear my souls complaint.

He lives to crush the fiends of hell;

He lives, and doth within me dwell;

He lives to heal and keep me whole;

He lives to guide my feeble soul.

He lives to banish 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, my kind and gracious Friend;

He lives, and loves me to the end;

He lives, and while he lives I'll sing,

He lives, my Prophet, Priest, and King.

He lives, all glory to his name!

He lives, my Jesus, still the same:

O sweet the joy this sentence gives,

"I know that my Redeemer lives."
