|IíVE found the pearl of greatest price,
My heart now sings for joy;
And praise I must, for Christ is mine,
Christ shall my song employ.
|2||He is my Prophet, Priest, and King:
My Prophet full of light,
My great High Priest before the throne,
My King of heavenly might.
|3||For He is truly Lord of lords,
And He the King of kings;
He is the Sun of Righteousness
With healing in His wings.
|4||Christ is my peace; He died for me,
For me He gave His blood;
As my atoning sacrifice,
Offered Himself to God.
|5||Christ Jesus is my All-in-all,
My comfort and my love,
My life below; and He shall be
My glory-crown above.
|John Mason, c 1646-94|
