Verse 1:
He lives, the great Redeemer lives
(What joy the blest assurance gives!)
And now before His Father God,
Pleads the full merit of His blood.

Verse 2:
Repeated crimes awake our fears,
And justice armed with frowns appears;
But in the Saviour’s lovely face
Sweet mercy smiles, and all is peace.

Great Advocate, Almighty Friend,
On Him our humble hopes depend:
Our cause can never, never fail,
For Jesus pleads, and must prevail.

Verse 3:
Hence, then, ye black despairing thoughts;
Above our fears, above our faults,
His powerful intercessions rise;
And guilt recedes, terror dies.

Verse 4:
In every dark distressful hour,
When sin and Satan join their power,
Let this dear hope repel the dart,
That Jesus bears us on His heart.
