JESUS, our life, is risen - Praise to Jesus
(James George Deck/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Praise to Jesus.

1. JESUS, our life, is risen –
  JESUS, who died to save:
burst are thy gates, O prison!
  thy vict'ry spoiled, O grave!
he who in grace descended,
  constrained by love to die,
triumphant has ascended
  to God's right hand on high. PDF - Midi

2. He, for the joy before him,
  endured the cross and shame,
therefore our souls adore him,
  and magnify his name:
JESUS, O name all glorious!
  he bore it on the tree;
JESUS, O name victorious!
  he bears it still for me.

3. JESUS, the sinner's Saviour,
  JESUS, the saved one's friend,
JESUS, whose mighty favour
  shall keep us to the end:
JESUS, High Priest in heaven,
  he bears us on his heart;
by God to JESUS given, –
  who us from him shall part?

4. JESUS, our faithful shepherd,
  he watches o'er his sheep,
from lion, and from leopard,
  his own he safe will keep:
how tenderly he careth!
  how well he knows our names,
and in his bosom beareth
  the weakest of his lambs!

5. We hear the Bridegroom telling,
  "Behold, I quickly come!"
O joy! all thought excelling,
  he'll take us to his home!
To see his face all-glorious,
  to hear his long-loved voice:
by him o'er all victorious,
  oh, how shall we rejoice!

6. All praise to thee, our Saviour!
  We glory in thy name;
our boast is in thy favour,
  our songs thy worth proclaim:
e'en in this vale of sorrow,
  we'll sing, as on we roam;
but, oh, the glad to-morrow!
  W e' l l  b e  w i t h  t h e e  a t  h o m e!
