Hymns using same tune:

#88, #233


Riches of Christ we should enjoy

And then His fulness we will be;

Partaking of His very self,

His testimony men will see.


Riches of Christ are what He is

To us who are His members true;

His fulness is what we become

As body doth to man accrue.


Riches of Christ are typified

By Canaan's produce rich and sweet,

With which the temple great was built,

The Church's greatest type replete.


As Eve to Adam fulness was,

So is the Church to Christ her Head;

As Eve from Adam's being came,

The Church by Christ's own life is bred.


Christ's riches are Himself within,

His fulness is the Church without,

As His expression, full of Him;

The Church with Christ is built throughout.
