592. I've found the pearl of greatest price!

1 I've found the pearl of greatest price!
My heart doth sing for joy;
And sing I must, for Christ is mine!
Christ shall my song employ.

Refrain:
I've found the pearl of greatest price!
My heart doth sing for joy;
And sing I must, for Christ is mine!
Christ shall my song employ.

2 Christ is my Prophet, Priest, and King;
My Prophet full of light,
My great High Priest before the Throne,
My King of heav'nly might. [Refrain]

3 For he indeed is Lord of lords,
And he the King of kings;
He is the Sun of Righteousness,
With healing in his wings. [Refrain]

4 Christ is my peace; he died for me,
For me he shed his blood;
And as my wondrous Sacrifice,
Offered himself to God.[Refrain]

5 Christ Jesus is my all in all,
My comfort and my love;
My life below, and he shall be
My joy and crown above. [Refrain]

Amen.
