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 heaven for ever mine.
