I’VE found the Pearl of greatest price,

My heart doth sing for joy;

And sing I must, a Christ I have:

Oh, what a Christ have I.


Christ is a Prophet, Priest, and King;

A Prophet full of light;

A Priest that stands ’twixt God and man,

A King that rules with might.


My Christ, He is the Lord of lords,

He is the King of kings;

He is the Sun of Righteousness,

With healing in His wings.


My Christ, He is the Tree of Life,

Who in God’s garden grows;

Whose fruit doth feed, whose leaves do heal;

My Christ is Sharon’s Rose.


Christ is my meat, Christ is my drink.

My medicine and my health;

My peace, my strength, my joy, my crown,

My glory and my wealth.


Christ is my Father, and my Friend,

My Brother, and my Love;

My Head, my Hope, my Counsellor,

My Advocate above.


My Christ, He is the Heaven of heavens;

My Christ what shall I call?

My Christ is First, my Christ is Last,

My Christ is All in all.
