Crucified, Risen, and Glorified

classic poetry header
*Pastor’s Note: A.B. Simpson was a very well respected Canadian preacher, theologian and author who lived from December 15, 1843 to October 29, 1919. My prayer is that you will be blessed and inspired by his poetry as much as I am.


“I am crucified with Christ:
Nevertheless I live;
Yet not I, but Christ liveth in me;
And the life which I now live in the flesh
I live by the faith of the Son of God,
Who loved me and gave himself for me.”
~ Galatians 2:20 ~

When Jesus died on Calvary,
I, too, was there;
’Twas in my place He stood for me,
And now accepted—even as He,
His right I share.

When Jesus rose with life divine,
I, too, was there;
His resurrection power is mine,
And, as the branches and the vine,
His life I share.

When Jesus comes some day for me,
I shall be there;
With Him and like Him I shall be,
And all His glorious majesty,
I, too, shall share.

O blessed life, so deep, so high!
Lord, keep me there;
Help me with Christ to live, to die,
And let me with Him bye and bye
His glory share.
