1 My heart is fixed, eternal God,
Fixed on Thee, fixed on Thee;
And my immortal choice is made:
Christ for me.
He is my Prophet, Priest and King,
Who did for me salvation bring;
And while I’ve breath I mean to sing,
Christ for me, Christ for me.

2 In Him I see the Godhead shine;
Christ for me, Christ for me;
He is the Majesty Divine:
Christ for me.
The Father’s well-beloved Son,
Copartner of His royal throne,
Who did for human guilt atone,
Christ for me, Christ for me.

3 In pining sickness or in health,
Christ for me, Christ for me;
In deepest poverty or wealth,
Christ for me.
And in that all-important day,
When I the summons must obey,
And pass from this dark world away,
Christ for me, Christ for me.
