132. The Person of the Christ

by Miss Wigram
The person of the Christ,
Enfolding every grace,
Once slain, but now alive again,
In heaven demands our praise.
Colossians 1:19; Colossians 2:3; Revelation 1:18
Gladly of Him we sing,
Since we with Him are dead:
Our life is hid with Christ in God,
In Christ the church's Head.
Psalm 100:2; Colossians 3:3; Colossians 1:18
The heavens are opened now!
Sound it through earth abroad;
And we, by faith, in heaven behold
Jesus the Christ, our Lord.
Acts 1:9; Mark 16:19; Hebrew 9:24; Hebrews  2:9; 1 Corinthians 1:9
