Tune: Rejoice, the Lord is King
For me to live is Christ – to die is gain for me,
But thanks be unto God who giveth us the victory
All through our Lord – through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Through Christ and Him alone.
I’m crucified with Christ – nevertheless I live,
Yet not I live, but Christ my Savior lives in me.
The life I live, I live by faith of God’s own Son
Who loveth me.
For ye are dead; your life is hid with Christ in God.
When Christ, who is our life, appears, we shall appear
Also with Him – with Him in glory we’ll appear –
Appear with Him.
And now unto the King immortal, eternal,
Invisible, God only wise be honor giv’n
Forevermore – forever and ever
And evermore. Amen.
