Representative Text

1. Jesus, I, a helpless mortal,
Ere I perish, come to thee;
Thou of life the only portal,
Give me immortality:
Soon this world must pass away;
Nought abides except in thee;
Give me life that lasts for aye;
Give me immortality.

2. Thou hast said thy sheep shall never,
Never perish cease to be;
O, I want to live forever;
Give me immortality:
Thou of hope the only door,
Thou of life the living tree,
Give me life for evermore;
Give me immorality.

3. Thou with endless life the power,
Great Melchisedek I see;
Share with me this priceless dower;
Give me immortality:
King of righteousness and peace,
Priest of God's eternity,
Give me life that ne'er shall cease;
Give me immortality.

4. Saviour dear, I yield thee now
Glory that belongs to thee;
Bread of life eternal, thou;
Give me immortality:
Save from death as well as sin;
Let me live, and live with thee:
Life of ages would I win;
Give me immortality.
