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.
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.
