Poem for the Day

 

 

 

CHRIST WITHIN

————

A LIVING Christ of wondrous birth,

Who trod the dreary paths of earth,

Shedding abroad His holy light

Through the deep gloom of sin’s dark night.

 

A dying Christ, whose precious blood

Seals the poor sinner’s peace with God;

And fills the soul with fullest love,

Like to the joy prepared above.

 

A Christ ascended—all is done,

A world redeemed, a victory won.

With angel hosts, a glorious throng.

We’ll sing with joy salvation’s song.

 

A living Christ our spirits need,

A loving Christ our souls to feed;

A dying Christ, our ransom He,

A risen Christ to set us free.

 

This, too, our need—a Christ within,

A life with God, afar from sin,

A Christ whose love our hearts shall fill,

and quite subdue our wayward will.
