Christ My Song - 1202
Every good possessing
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Every good possessing.
"For all things are yours." (1 Corinthians 3,21)
1. Every good possessing
in our Saviour's blessing,
let us live to celebrate his grace!
2. Mean the worldling's treasure!
Short his boasted pleasure!
They alone are blessed who know the Lord.
3. Sweet the scene before us!
We shall join the chorus
of the saints and angels round his throne.
4. Let the prospect cheer us;
here our Lord is near us,
but in heav'n we see him as he is.
5. Till we reach our station,
let his great salvation
be the glorious subject of our songs!
Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 291.
