I’VE 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
