Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

To live in Christ, is life indeed

To live in Christ, is life indeed

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 To live in Christ is life indeed,
And so to die is gain;
Since by his death my soul is freed
From sin and endless pain.

2 My soul desires with him to be,
And see him as he is;
That grace which he bestows on me,
Confirms that I am his.

3 I harbour neither doubt nor fear,
That I shall be deceiv'd;
And I shall see my Saviour there,
In whom I here believ'd.

4 Tho' here I bear the Cross a while,
And suffer with my Lord;
For all my labour pain and toil,
He will be my reward.

5 When he shall raise me from the dust,
And fashion me anew;
And be permitted with the just:
His face in heav'n to view.
