I. Christ is my Light and Treasure;
In Death he is my Life;
Through him I leave with Pleasure
This World of Sin and Strive.
II. With Joy my Soul is ready
To meet my Brother CHRIST:
Our Union shall be steady,
Our Love rais'd to the high'st.
III. World, Sin and their Temptation
Are conquer'd by his Blood;
His Death seal'd my Salvation
With my forgiving God.
IV. When all my Pow'rs are fainting,
And Speech is from me fled,
Accept, o Lord, my Panting,
Accept my Sighs in Stead.
V. With humble Resignation
On CHRIST I lean my Head;
At th' Hour of Expiration
His Cross shall be my Bed.
VI. Then, Lord, with Thee united,
Display to me thy Bliss;
And let my soul be plighted
To endless Love and Peace.
