Christ, My Life


Add to Cart:

I saw the sun break through the night; my joy rose with the dawn.

But when the clouds obscured the light, my gladness, too, was gone.

   Look not to fading earthly light to gladden and to cheer you--

   I am the Dayspring from on High, and I am ever near you!


I sought fulfillment in a goal of which I long had dreamed,

But learned too late, to my dismay, 'twas not as it had seemed.

   If in a dream you put your trust, its emptiness will grieve you--

   I am the Life, the Truth, the Way, and I will not deceive you!


So pleased was I with good I'd done, until I looked within.

'Twas then I knew my purest breath was tainted through with sin.

   There's naught but trusting in My blood can from sin's guilt relieve you--

   I am the Lord your Righteousness, and I'll in grace receive you.


I found a friend so kind and true; my heart so strong had grown.

But flesh is frail, and death is cold, and now I walk alone.

   If strength depends on earthly friends, defeat will soon o'ertake you--

   I only am Eternal Love, and I will not forsake you!


I filled my life with treasures dear; my heart was so content.

But now the things that brought me joy are faded, soiled, and bent.

   The things of earth will pass away and of their joys bereave you--

   'Tis I who am your Great Reward, and I will never leave you!


May eternal values be your guide, and Christ Himself your goal.


I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:  therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:  That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey His voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto Him:  for He is thy life, and the length of thy days.  Deuteronomy 30:19-20


I have set the Lord always before me:  because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 

Psalm 16:8
