Title: In Him We Live
Composer: Sally DeFord
Original text and translations
In him we live, in him who made the world
Who caused the seas to swell and bid the skies unfurl
The earth beneath us formed at his command
By him made beautiful and given unto man.
In him we live, preserved from day to day
Led in our wilderness along the surest way
And when we fall 'tis he who bids us rise
Dispels our darkness and enlightens our eyes.
In him we live, and he prepares a place
Where all who will may gain the riches of his grace
By him we come to God our Father, heirs to everlasting life
He is our way, he is our light
In him we live.
In him we live, what debt of love and faith
We owe to Christ our King, our ransom from the grave
For by his suffering, by his mortal death
Each mortal soul shall rise and draw immortal breath!
Then shall we live, made glorious in him
Our sorrow turned to joy, victorious in him!
In him perfected, sanctified in Christ
By his unmeasured mercy never more to die.
