This hymn is a simple confession of the true believer’s desire and aim in life: to live for God, rely on his grace, and look forward to meeting him again. Enjoy!
This life I live is not my own,
For my redeemer paid the price;
He took it to be his alone,
To be his treasure and his prize.
The things of earth I leave behind,
To live in worship of my King;
His is the right to rule my life,
Mine is the joy to live for him.
I died to sin upon the cross,
I’m bound to Jesus in his death;
The old is gone, and now I must,
Rely on him for every breath.
With every footstep that I tread,
What mysteries he has in store;
I cannot know what lies ahead,
But know that he has gone before.
There is a voice that pierced the grave,
A power that rolled the stone away;
A sound of life, I know I’m saved,
The voice of God has called my name.
So I will rise, and in the air,
Behold the glory of the King;
I will not fear to meet him there,
I know my life is hid with him.
