3 The arms of everlasting love

272 Living by Faith. C.M.
I am crucified with CHRIST: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but CHRIST liveth in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of GOD, who loved me, and gave himself for me.-GAL. ii. 20.
JESUS, while in this mortal flesh
2 Daily by faith on thee I live,
3 Yes, thou hast lov'd this sinful worm,
4 LORD, on thy cross 1 fix mine eyes,

And tell the loudest foes without,
