Abiding in Christ
Abiding in Christ, our Redeemer,
We have life abundant and free,
And whatever circumstances come…
We are secure eternally.
When those dark clouds hover all around
And we feel we’ll sink in despair,
His glorious light comes shining through…
And we know our Shepherd is there.
Abiding in Him, we have a peace
That passes all understanding,
Joy unspeakable, full of Glory…
Forgiveness--a righteous standing.
When the devil tempts or accuses,
We simply point to Calvary,
Where Jesus willingly shed His blood…
Breaking all chains…setting us free!
Abiding in Christ, we have a song,
A joyful song of victory,
And nothing can take that song away…
We’ll sing through all eternity.
Risen with Him to newness of life,
His Spirit now living within,
We are free to walk his Holy way...
Evermore abiding in Him.
“Therefore we are buried with him by baptism:
that like as Christ was raised up from the dead
by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk
in newness of life.”
