1 In Christ my treasure's all contain'd;
By him my feeble soul's sustain'd;
From him I all things do receive,
Through him my soul does daily live.

2 With him I daily love to walk,
Of him my soul delights to talk;
On him I cast my every care;
Like him one day I shall appear.

3 Bless him, my soul, from day to day;
Trust him to bring thee on thy way:
Give him thy poor weak sinful heart;
With him, O never, never part.

4 Take him for strength and righteousness;
Make him thy refuge in distress;
Love him above all earthly joy,
And him in every thing employ.

5 Praise him in cheerful, grateful songs,
To him your highest praise belongs;
To him who does your heav'n prepare,
And him you'll praise for ever there.
