Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


How great are my privileges in Christ Jesus!
Without him I stand far off, a stranger, an outcast;
  in him I draw near and touch his kingly sceptre.
Without him I dare not lift up my guilty eyes;
  in him I gaze upon my Father-God and Friend.
Without him I hide my lips in trembling shame;
  in him I open my mouth in petition and praise.
Without him all is wrath and consuming fire;
  in him is all love, and the repose of my soul.
Without him is gaping hell below me, and eternal
  in him its gates are barred to me by his precious
Without him darkness spreads its horrors in front;
  in him an eternity of glory is my boundless
Without him all within me is terror and dismay,
  in him every accusation is charmed into joy and
Without him all things external call for my
  in him they minister to my comfort,
  and are to be enjoyed with thanksgiving.
Praise be to thee for grace,
  and for the unspeakable gift of Jesus.
