4 He lives to silence all my fears,
He lives to stop and wipe my tears,
He lives to calm my troubled heart,
He lives all blessings to impart:
 
5 He lives my kind, wise, heav’nly friend,
He lives and loves me to the end,
He lives, and while he lives I’ll sing,
He lives my Prophet, Priest, and King:
 
6 He lives and grants me daily breath,
He lives, and I shall conquer death,
He lives my mansion to prepare,
He lives to bring me safely there:
 
7 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.”
 
Hymn 80 • How often in sweet miditation, my mind
HYMN 80. P. M.
 
1 How often in sweet miditation, my mind,
(Where solitude reigned and aside from mankind,
Has dwelt on the hour, when the Saviour did deign,
To call me his servant to publish his name.
