Lyrics: Samuel Medley, 1775
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
I know that my Redeemer lives;
What comfort this sweet sentence gives;
He lives, He lives, who once was dead,
He lives, my everlasting Head.
He lives to give me full supply;
He lives to bless me with his eyes,
He lives to comfort me when faint,
He lives to hear my soul’s complaint.
He lives, all glory to his name!
He lives, my Jesus, still the same,
O the sweet joy this sentence gives,
“I know that my Redeemer lives.”
Composed July 30, 1987, by Stanley Smith of Alabama, and Kim and Hazel Cagle of Lanett, Alabama.
