1 I’ve found the pearl of greatest price,
My heart doth sing for joy:
And sing I must, a Christ I have;
O what a Christ have I?
2 Christ is the Way, the Truth, the Life,
The way to God on high,
Life to the dead, the truth of types,
The truth of prophesy.
3 Christ is a prophet, priest and king,
A Prophet full of light,
A Priest that stands ‘twixt God and man,
A King that rules with might.
4 Christ’s manhood is a temple, where
The altar God doth rest;
My Christ, he is the sacrifice,
My Christ he is the priest.
5 My Christ he is the Lord of lords,
He is the King of kings;
He is the Sun of righteousness,
With healing in his wings.
6 My Christ, he is the Tree of Life,
Which in God’s garden grows;
Whose fruit does feed, whose leaves do heal;
My Christ is Sharon’s rose.
7 Christ is my meat, Christ is my drink,
My physic and my health,
My peace, my strength, my joy, my crown,
My glory and my wealth.
8 Christ is my father, and my friend,
My brother and my love;
My head, my hope, my counselor,
My advocate above.
9 My Christ, he is the Heaven of heavens,
My Christ what shall I call?
My Christ is first, my Christ is last,
My Christ is all in all.
