Poems - We Which Live

“We Which Live”

Verse 1
LIVE, in the love of God,
Deal with the Lord alone!
Live in the blaze of that white light,
That beats about God’s throne.

Verse 2
LIVE, cleaving to His Word,
Its faithfulness to prove;
Live, looking for thy Lord’s return,
Live, feeding on His love.

Verse 3
LIVE, so that life on earth
A foretaste shall become
Of perfect life where God is king,
Thou heir of Jesus’ throne!

Verse 4
LIVE, counting all but loss,
Save that which draws thee in
To that great heart which broke for thee,
Because it bore thy sin.

Verse 5
LIVE, counting nothing gain,
Save that which makes Christ dear;
Live, set apart to prove to men
That earth and heaven are near.

Verse 6
LIVE till thy life on earth
Shall so unearthly be
That Christ shall catch thee to His throne,
Child of eternity!

“For while we live we are always being given up to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh.” 2 Corinthians 4:11
