Hymn using same tune: #332


Not to ourselves again,

Not to flesh we live;

Not to world henceforth shall we

Our strength, our being give.


The time past of our lives

Sufficeth to have wrought

The fleshly will, which only ill

Hath to us ever brought.


No longer is our life

A thing unused or vain;

To us e'en here to live is Christ,

To us to die is gain.


Our life is hid with Christ,

With Christ in God above,

Upward our heart would go to Him,

Whom, seeing not, we love.


He liveth, and we live!

His life for us prevails;

His fulness fills our mighty void,

His strength for us avails.
