Christ Liveth in Me

Representative Text

1 Once far from God and dead in sin,
No light my heart could see;
But in God’s Word the light I found,
Now Christ liveth in me.

Christ liveth in me,
Christ liveth in me,
Oh! what a salvation this,
That Christ liveth in me.

2 As rays of light from yonder sun,
The flow’rs of earth set free,
So life and light and love came forth
From Christ living in me. [Refrain]

3 As lives the flow’r within the seed,
As in the cone the tree,
So, praise the God of truth and grace,
His Spirit dwelleth in me. [Refrain]

4 With longing all my heart is filled,
That like Him I may be,
As on the wondrous thought I dwell
That Christ liveth in me. [Refrain]
