Representative Text

1 My soul is now united
to Christ, the living vine;
His grace I long have slighted,

I'd lay me down and die.

2 Soon as my all I ventured
On the atoning blood,
His Holy Spirit entered,
And I was born of God. [Refrain]

3 Still Christ is my salvation,

I fear no condemnation,
My Father's wrath is o'er. [Refrain]

4 I taste a heavenly pleasure,
And need not fear a frown;
Christ is my joy and treasure,
My glory and my crown. [Refrain]
