Lyrics

Hidden with Christ in God,
Dead to the world am I;
Treading the path that Jesus trod,
Leading to Heav’n on high;
Yet I know, as I onward plod,
My life is hidden with Christ in God.

Hidden with Christ in God,
Death cannot harm my soul;
He died that I might live again;
His blood has made me whole.
E’en when resting beneath the sod,
My life is hidden with Christ in God.
