In mine own flesh I see

In mine own flesh I see

1 In mine own Flesh I see
My dear Redeemer, God:
And in that body he
Redeem'd me by his Blood:
Made one, no more to part again,
In him I ever shall remain.

2 Bone of his Bone I am,
And evermore shall be;
One great Immortal Name
Is nam'd on him and me:
In him, complete, I now possess
The Fulness of redeeming Grace.

3 When from his pierced Side
Came forth, in bleeding Love,
His lov'd, his royal Bride,
The Life divine to prove;
To her this sacred Truth he seal'd,
That all her Maladies were heal'd.

4 What tho' I mortal am,
And shall to Dust return:
In the prevailing Lamb
I unto God am born:
In him I live above all Fear,
Nor Sin, nor Death, can reach me there.
