1 Who is my life but Christ alone?
I seek no joy beside;
His love and peace flow in my soul,

3 What is the church but Christ alone?
No other fold I need;
I live in Him, the living vine,
His word my only creed.

4 Who but the Savior died for me?

For all my sins upon the tree,
He drank the cup alone.

5 Who purchased me when lost in sin
But Christ, whose love I own?
O Lamb of God, my all is Thine,
I am no more my own.
