HYMN 22 PART 1

L. M.

Christ the eternal life. Rom. 9:5.

306

Jesus, our Savior and our God,

Arrayed in majesty and blood,

Thou art our life; our souls in thee

Possess a full felicity.

All our immortal hopes are laid

In thee, our surety and our head;

Thy cross, thy cradle, and thy throne,

Are big with glories yet unknown.

Let atheists scoff, and Jews blaspheme

Th' eternal life and Jesus' name;

A word of thy almighty breath

Dooms the rebellious world to death.

But let my soul for ever lie

Beneath the blessings of thine eye;

'Tis heav'n on earth, 'tis heav'n above,

To see thy face and taste thy love.
