“I am He that Liveth”

Verse 1:
He dies! He dies! the lowly Man of sorrows,
On whom were laid our many griefs and woes;
Our sins He bore, beneath God’s awful billows,
And He hath triumph’d over all our foes.

Refrain:
“I am He that liveth, that liveth and was dead,
I am He that liveth, that liveth and was dead;
And behold, I am alive forevermore,
Behold, I am alive forevermore;
I am He that liveth, that liveth and was dead,
And behold, I am alive forevermore.”

Verse 2:
He lives! He lives! what glorious consolation!
Exalted at His Father’s own right hand,
He pleads for us, and by His intercession,
Enables all His saints by grace to stand.

Verse 3:
He comes! He comes! O blest anticipation!
In keeping with His true and faithful word;
To call us to our heav’nly consummation–
Caught up, to be “forever with the Lord.

C.R.H./J.H. Burke
