J. McGranahan


AS lives the flower within the seed,

As in the cone the tree,

So, praise the God of truth and grace,

His Spirit dwelleth in me.

Christ liveth in me,

Christ liveth in me,

O what a salvation this,

That Christ liveth in me!


Once far from God and dead in sin,

No light my heart could see;

But in God’s Word the light I found,

Now Christ liveth in me.


As rays of light from yonder sun

The flowers of earth set free,

So life and light and love came forth

From Christ living in me.


With longing all my heart is filled,

That like Him I may be,

As on the wondrous thought I dwell,

That Christ liveth in me.
