Hymnal: The Christians Duty, exhibited, in a series of Hymns #CXXIX (1791) Topics: Life of Christ, Characters and Representations Lyrics: 1 I've found the Pearl of greatest Price,
My Heart doth sing for Joy:
And sing I must, a Christ I have;
O what a Christ have I?
2 Christ is the Way, the Truth, the Life,
The Way to God on High,
Life to the Dead, the Truth of Types,
The Truth of Prophesy.
3 Christ is a Prophet, Priest and King,
A Prophet full of Light,
A Priest that stands 'twixt God and Man,
A King that rules with Might.
4 Christ's Manhood is a Temple, where
The Altar God doth rest;
My Christ, he is the Sacrifice,
My Christ he is the Priest.
5 My Christ he is the Lord of Lords,
He is the King of Kings;
He is the Sun of Righteousness,
With Healing in his Wings.
6 My Christ, he is the Tree of Life,
Which in God's garden grows;
Whose Fruit does feed, whose Leaves do heal;
My Christ is Sharon's Rose.
7 Christ is my Meat, Christ is my Drink,
My Physick and my Health,
My Peace, my Strength, my Joy, my Crown,
My Glory and my Wealth.
8 Christ is my Father, and my Friend,
My Brother and my Love;
My Head, my Hope, my Counsellor,
My Advocate above.
9 My Christ, he is the Heav'n of Heav'ns,
My Christ what shall I call?
My Christ is First, my Christ is Last,
My Christ is All in All. Languages: English
