132. The Person of the Christ

S.M.
by Miss Wigram
1
The person of the Christ,
 
Enfolding every grace,
 
Once slain, but now alive again,
 
In heaven demands our praise.
“For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell.” (Colossians 1:19)
“In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” (Colossians 2:3)
2
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.
3
The heavens are opened now!
 
Sound it through earth abroad;
 
And we, by faith, in heaven behold
 
Jesus the Christ, our Lord.
