O Christ, Thou art my treasure

Representative Text

1 O Christ, thou art my treasure!
To work with thee is pleasure
'Tis joy beyond all measure
To win lost souls to thee.

Chorus:
By and by we will rest with thee in heaven,
When from our earth-toil riven
And to thee will eternal praise be given,
O Jesus, King of Kings!

2 O may I ne'er grow weary
Tho' rough the way and dreary,
The end I know is cheery
'Tis joy forevermore. [Chorus]

3 Tho' tempest-tossed and driven,
We soon shall reach the haven,
And there is rest in heaven
Sweet rest forevermore. [Chorus]
