After the resurrection of Eutychus, the people were greatly comforted! Resurrections have a way of comforting us too, don’t they?

     7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight. 8 And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together. 9 And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead. 10 And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him. 11 When he therefore was come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and talked a long while, even till break of day, so he departed. 12 And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted.(KJV)

1. Jesus lives! The victory’s won! 
Death no longer can appall me; 
Jesus lives! Death’s reign is done! 
From the grave Christ will recall me. 
Brighter scenes will then commence; 
This shall be my confidence. 

2. Jesus lives! To Him the throne 
High o’er heaven and earth is given. 
I shall go where He is gone, 
Live and reign with Him in heaven. 
God is faithful. Doubtings, hence! 
This shall be my confidence. 

3. Jesus lives! For me He died, 
Hence will I, to Jesus living, 
Pure in heart and act abide, 
Praise to Him and glory giving. 
Freely God doth aid dispense; 
This shall be my confidence. 

4. Jesus lives! I know full well 
Naught from me His love shall sever; 
Life nor death nor powers of hell 
Part me now from Christ forever. 
God will be a sure Defense; 
This shall be my confidence. 

5. Jesus lives! and now is death 
But the gate of life immortal; 
This shall calm my trembling breath 
When I pass its gloomy portal. 
Faith shall cry, as fails each sense, 
Jesus is my confidence!
