Upon a life I have not lived, upon a death I will not die,
Another's life, another's death, I stake my whole eternity.
Not on tears that I have shed; not on sorrows I have known,
Another's tears, another's grief, on them I rest, on them alone.
Lord, I believe; oh deal with me as one who has Your Word believed;
I take the gift, Lord look on me as one who has Your gift received.
Jesus, Son of God, I build on what Your cross has done for me;
There both death and life I read, my guilt and pardon there I see
I taste the love Your gift contains, I take the pardon that You bring,
And pass up to the living source above, where all the fullness springs.
Here at Your feast I take the pledge eternal life in my heart seal,
Here in the bread and wine I read the grace and peace Your death reveals.
Holy! Holy! Lord God Almighty!
Worthy! Worthy! Heaven and earth are full of Your glory!
