Tune:  A mighty fortress is our God... (Danish:  Vor Gud han er så fast en borg..)

The name of Christ lifts up my soul
with true relief and power,
apart from Him I´m not made whole,
for sadness will devour
my boldness, health and thrill,
but Jesus can and will
with grace sufficient be
that I in Him may see
my Rock and my salvation!

In me there dwelleth no good thing,
no remedy is given,
but when to Jesus Christ I cling
I to His work am driven,
I am in Him alone
by God as perfect known,
for Christ my Righteousness
is all that counts, no less,
and now my cup flows over!

I on that solid ground won´t yield,
His Spirit´s seal I´m wearing,
His gospel in the open field
I´m now with others sharing,
no matter how you frowned,
o, hear this gracious sound:
Your soul Christ wants to save
for you His life He gave,
receive by faith His mercy!
