11926. I Am, Saith Christ

1 "I am," saith Christ, our glorious head
(May we attention give),
“The resurrection of the dead,
The life of all that live.

2 "By faith in Me, the soul receives
New life, though dead before;
And he that in My name believes,
Shall live, to die no more.

3 "The sinner, sleeping in his grave,
Shall at My voice awake;
And when I once begin to save,
My work I ne’er forsake."

4 Fulfill Thy promise, gracious Lord,
On us assembled here;
Put forth Thy spirit with the Word,
And cause the dead to hear.

5 Preserve the power of faith alive,
In those who love Thy name;
For sin and Satan daily strive
To quench the sacred flame.

6 Thy power and mercy first prevailed,
From death to set us free;
And often since our life had failed
If not renewed by Thee.

7 To Thee we look, to Thee we bow;
To Thee for help we call;
Our life and resurrection Thou,
Our hope, our joy, our all.
