Representative Text

1 None but Christ: his merit hides me,

2 None but Christ: his Spirit seals me,
Gives me freedom with control;
None but Christ, his bruising heals me,

3 None but Christ; his life sustains me,
Strength and song to me he is;
None but Christ, his love constrains me,
He is mine and I am his.
