Hymns using same tune:

#88, #233


 1  Riches of Christ we should enjoy

    And then His fulness we will be;

    Partaking of His very self,

    His testimony men will see.


 2  Riches of Christ are what He is

    To us who are His members true;

    His fulness is what we become

    As body doth to man accrue.


 3  Riches of Christ are typified

    By Canaan's produce rich and sweet,

    With which the temple great was built,

    The Church's greatest type replete.


 4  As Eve to Adam fulness was,

    So is the Church to Christ her Head;

    As Eve from Adam's being came,

    The Church by Christ's own life is bred.


 5  Christ's riches are Himself within,

    His fulness is the Church without,

    As His expression, full of Him;

    The Church with Christ is built throughout.
