Representative Text

1 Wondrous mystery divine,
Hidden since the world began,
Living in this heart of mine
Is the risen Son of man.

Christ in me, O wondrous story!
Christ in me Christ in me!
Christ in me, the hope of glory!
Christ in me, yes, Christ in me!

2 Less than least of saints am I,
Yet His matchless love sufficed
To reveal His Son in me,—
Gracious, wonder-working Christ. [Refrain]

3 Crucified with Christ my Lord,
Death with Jesus reckoned mine;
Yet alive forevermore,
Christ in me by power divine. [Refrain]

4 Tossed no longer to and fro,
By men’s doctrines new and old,
But established by His power,
Strengthened by His might untold. [Refrain]

5 Gone all worldly stress and strife,
Glad I tread the path He trod.
By His presence now conformed
To the perfect will of God. [Refrain]
