Christ and Sanctification

How blest are they who still abide
Close shelter’d in Thy bleeding side!
Who life and strength from Thee derive,
And by Thee move, and in Thee live.
Firstborn of many brethren Thou!
To Thee, lo, all our souls we bow;
To Thee our hearts and hands we give;
Thine may we die, Thine may we live.
Zinzendorf, tr. Wesley
