This was our opening hymn at church this morning – I really liked it.
With Christ I Have Been Crucified
- With Christ I have been crucified;
Baptized onto His cross I died.
With liquid nails to Him I’m bound,
So where He is, there I am found.
- Within His wounds I safely hide;
With Christ I have been crucified.
His flesh my flesh, His bone my bone,
My life is His, and His my own.
- In Mary’s womb, in Bethlehem,
From cross to grave, with Him I am
With Christ I have been crucified;
And raised with Him, in life abide.
- Lest sin’s deceit, or death’s despair,
Or Satan’s charms, your soul ensnare,
Onto your heart these words inscribe:
With Christ I have been crucified! Amen.
