1. I’m thankful that God has placed me
With you to build up His body.
Christ in you, is the hope for me!
You also need Christ lived in me.
I live, if you stand firm in the Lord.
You live, if I stand firm in the Lord.
My going on is for you,
Your going on is for me,
Not sep’rate entities, I need you saints desp’rately!
2. Oh, what a sweet church life have we!
Built up in Him, His bride to be!
In Him, steadfast you help me be;
Encouraged by Christ Whom I see.
3. Your faith in Christ helps me pursue;
My progress depends upon you!
As I seek Christ, with you in view,
My heart, full of prayers, is for you,
4. God’s heart longs, desires that we,
His lovers, seek Him corp’ratly;
On each other spent constantly;
My life is for you, your’s for me.
5. I want to encourage you all.
Without your supply I would fall.
Never think that your Christ is small.
Christ needs you, and so do we all.
