1 Christ's life our code, His cross our creed,
Our common, glad confession be;
Our deepest wants, our highest aims,
Find their fulfilment, Lord, in Thee.
2 Dear Son of God! Thy blessed will
Our hearts would own, with saints above;
All life is larger for Thy law,
All service sweeter for Thy love.
3 Thy life our code! in letters clear
We read our duty day by day,
Thy footsteps tracing eagerly,
Who art the Truth, the Life, the Way.
4 Thy cross our creed! Thy boundless love
A ransomed world at last shall laud,
And crown Thee their eternal King,
O Lord of Glory! Lamb of God!
5 Till then, to Thee our souls aspire
In ardent prayer and earnest deed,
With love like Thine, confessing,
Christ's life our code! His cross our creed!
