361. My soul is now united to Christ, the living vine

1 My soul is now united to Christ, the living vine;
His grace I long have slighted, but now I feel him mine;
I was to God a stranger till Jesus took me in,
He freed my soul from danger and pardoned all my sin.

2 Soon as my all I ventured on the atoning blood,
The Holy Spirit entered, and I was born of God;
My sins are all forgiven, I feel his blood applied,
And I shall go to Heaven if I in Christ abide.

3 By floods and flames surrounded, I still my way pursue,
Nor shall I be confounded, with Glory in my view;
Still Christ is my salvation; what can I covet more?
I fear no condemnation, my Father’s wrath is o’er.
