1. In Christ I feel the heart of God
Throbbing from Heav’n through earth;
Life stirs again within the clod,
Renewed in beauteous birth;
The soul springs up, a flower of prayer,
Breathing His breath out on the air.
2. In Christ I touch the hand of God,
From His pure height reached down,
By blessèd ways before untrod,
To lift us to our crown;
Vict’ry that only perfect is
Through loving sacrifice, like His.
3. Holding His hand, my steadied feet
May walk the air, the seas;
On life and death His smile falls sweet,
Lights up all mysteries;
Stranger nor exile can I be
In new worlds where He leadeth me.
4. Not my Christ only; He is ours:
Humanity’s close bond;
Key to its vast, unopened powers,
Dream of our dreams beyond.
What yet we shall be none can tell:
Now we are His, and all is well.
