188 HYMN 244.
What is the thing of greatest price,
The whole creation round?
That which was lost in Paradise,
m
That which in Christ is found.
2 The soul of man, Jehovah's breath.
That keeps two worlds at strife;
Hell moves beneath to work its death.
Heaven stoops to give it life.
3 God, to redeem it, did not spare
His well beloved Son;
Jesus, to save it, deigned to bear
The sins which we had done.
4 And is this treasure borne below
In earthen vessels frail?
Can none its utmost value know,
Till flesh and spirit fail?
5 Then let us gather round the cross.
That knowledge to obtain;
Not by the soul's eternal loss,
But everlasting gain.
