Oh everything’s now second best
for I have entered holy rest,
my old attachments have come loose
He’s taken off my worldly noose.
Oh everything’s been made anew
as Jesus Christ for ever knew,
that I’d one day see I was lost
I’d realise what sin has cost.
Oh everything’s been reconciled
the Son in my place was reviled,
was offered up for all my sins
old things have died, new life begins.
Oh everything’s now last not first
for holy water now I thirst,
I’m hungry for the bread of life
I earn no living, Christ’s my life.
