Lyrics

Spread the tidings all abroad,
Jesus lives, Jesus lives;
Glory, glory be to God,
Jesus lives, Jesus lives.
In the cold grave, where He lay,
Come and see, come and see;
Angels sit in bright array,
Come and see, come and see.
Spread the tidings all abroad,
Jesus lives, Jesus lives;
Glory, glory be to God,
Jesus lives, Jesus lives.

Let the nations now rejoice,
Jesus lives, Jesus lives;
Praise Him with a joyful voice,
Jesus lives, Jesus lives.
Heaven’s gates are opened wide,
Opened wide, opened wide;
We shall enter glorified,
Glorified, glorified.
Let the nations now rejoice,
Jesus lives, Jesus lives;
Praise Him with a joyful voice,
Jesus lives, Jesus lives.
