So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

696. 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]
