1 “In Christ!”“In Christ!” Oh, wondrous words,
That gem th’Apostle’s pages!
How shine they for all humble souls
Throughout the weary ages!
They speak of pardon full and free,
A new exalted station;
It’s mine! It’s mine, this gift divine,
This precious consolation.
In Christ I trust, in Christ I stand,
Oh, hear my grateful story,
I’ll tell it out while life shall last,
In Christ is all my glory.
2 In Christ! In Christ from Satan’s wiles
I find a sure protection;
No one shall pluck me from his hand,
Or from his strong affection.
In him I find rich grace to help,
Which none on earth can render;
A refuge near from ev’ry fear,
A fellowship most tender. [Refrain]
3 In Christ! In Christ my destiny
Is bright with prospects glorious;
Because he lives I too shall live,
O’er sin and death victorious.
In heav’nly places he’s my pledge
By bonds no foe can sever;
In him above I’ll share God’s love
Forever and forever. [Refrain]
