516. Jesus, I Live to Thee

1 Jesus, I live to thee,
the loveliest and best;
my life in thee, thy life in me,
in thy blest love I rest.

2 Jesus, I die to thee,
whenever death shall come;
to die in thee is life to me
in my eternal home.

3 Whether to live or die,
I know not which is best;
to live in thee is bliss to me,
to die is endless rest.

4 Living or dying, Lord,
I ask but to be thine;
my life in thee, thy life in me,
makes heav'n forever mine.
