No Mere Man

No mere man is the Christ I know
But greater far than all below
Day by day his love enfolds me
Day by day his power upholds me
All that God could ever be
The man of Nazareth is to me

No mere man can my strenght sustain
And drive away all fear and pain
Holding me close in his embrace
When death and I stand face to face
Then all that God could ever be
The unseen Christ will be to me
