To Me To Live Let It Be Christ

To me to live, let it be Christ,
To me to die will then be gain,
If here into his death baptized,
His resurrection I attain.

As He was in the world, let me,
Born from above, my course fulfil;
My meat, my drink, my business be
To do my heavenly Father’s will.

So, when He comes, with glory crown’d,
To claim His own, and seal them His,
I in his likeness shall be found,
For I shall see Him as He is.
