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.
