You, Christ Jesus, give me breath and heartbeat,
My Lord, you've given to me Zoe life.
Beneath Your gaze the devil's power fleets,
Your Word is sharper than his sharpest knife.
His aim, to steal our joy and harmony,
He would destroy the closeness that we share.
He and his are bested by Your glory
As onto You I cast my every care.
As I fix my eyes on You, my Savior,
I'm trusting that You'll rapture Yours quite soon.
Paid for by Your cross, not our behavior,
Your Spirit's presence drives away all gloom.
The rooms You're making us will be divine,
And even now is my Beloved mine.
