Christ in me the law of life is
|Christ in me the law of life is
Working e'er spontaneously.
He's the Spirit in my spirit;
The almighty pow'r is He.
|Christ in me the law of life is,
Operating now in me;
With its automatic power,
Making me the same as He!
|Trusting in His mighty power,
I would cease from all my strife—
‘Tis not I but He who worketh—
As I rest and reign in life.
|Law of life in Christ has freed me
From the law of sin and death,
As I walk in Christ, in spirit,
Living out God's Righteousness.
|As the law, He's now dispensing
To my being tripartite
He Himself as life eternal,
Making me a man of life.
|Into Christ's own glorious image,
Now this law is shaping me.
Christ, the Prototype, God's Firstborn,
Will be reproduced in me.
|Inner law will constitute me
Member of Christ Body true
And develop all my function
By divine capacity.
