1 Alive in Christ! oh, happy day
When from the death of sin I rose;
Sweet was the new birth’s glorious thrill,
And day by day ‘tis sweeter still.
Alive in Christ! my spirit glows
And my glad heart sings on its way,
As it recounts the wondrous word
That reconciled me to my Lord.

2 Alive in Christ! I grow in grace,
And joyous tread the upward road;
Holding communion sweet with God,
I pass the mystic vales of sin:
Alive in Christ! yes, all within
Is purged from guilt and purified;
I closer seek my Saviour’s side,
And joy to see his smiling face.

3 ‘Tis done, complete in Christ I stand;
All former joys are lost in this,—
The deep, subdued subduing bliss,
Lord I am naught: thou, thou, art all.
May thy sweet peace forever fall
On me, for my poor will is gone,
Thine is the best, let thine be done;
For so I love thee, O my God.
