Enjoy two hymns in one book!

Reflect on Christ’s passion while singing the Lenten hymn Christ, the Life of All the Living. Flip the book over and rejoice in His resurrection with the Easter hymn Like the Golden Sun Ascending (sometimes abridged as Thanks to Thee, O Christ, Victorious).

From the sturdy columns throughout to the rich imagery within, the bold illustrations chronicle our salvation. The carefully painted cut paper designs truly bring Lent and Easter to life for even the youngest readers.

Excerpts

  1. Christ, the life of all the living,
    Christ, the death of death, our foe,
    Who, Thyself for me once giving
    To the darkest depths of woe:
    Through Thy suff’rings, death, and merit
    I eternal life inherit.
    Thousand, thousand thanks shall be,
    Dearest Jesus, unto Thee.
  2. Thou, ah! Thou, hast taken on Thee
    Bonds and stripes, a cruel rod;
    Pain and scorn were heaped upon Thee,
    O Thou sinless Son of God!
    Thus didst Thou my soul deliver
    From the bonds of sin forever.
    Thousand, thousand thanks shall be,
    Dearest Jesus, unto Thee.
  3. Thou hast borne the smiting only
    That my wounds might all be whole;
    Thou hast suffered, sad and lonely,
    Rest to give my weary soul;
    Yea, the curse of God enduring,
    Blessing unto me securing.
    Thousand, thousand thanks shall be,
    Dearest Jesus, unto Thee.
  4. Heartless scoffers did surround Thee,
    Treating Thee with shameful scorn
    And with piercing thorns they crowned Thee.
    All disgrace Thou, Lord, hast borne,
    That as Thine Thou mightest own me
    And with heav’nly glory crown me.
    Thousand, thousand thanks shall be,
    Dearest Jesus, unto Thee.
  5. Thou hast suffered men to bruise Thee,
    That from pain I might be free;
    Falsely did Thy foes accuse Thee:
    Thence I gain security;
    Comfortless Thy soul did languish
    Me to comfort in my anguish.
    Thousand, thousand thanks shall be,
    Dearest Jesus, unto Thee.
  6. Thou hast suffered great affliction
    And hast borne it patiently,
    Even death by crucifixion,
    Fully to atone for me;
    Thou didst choose to be tormented
    That my doom should be prevented.
    Thousand, thousand thanks shall be,
    Dearest Jesus, unto Thee.
  7. Then, for all that wrought my pardon,
    For Thy sorrows deep and sore,
    For Thine anguish in the Garden,
    I will thank Thee evermore,
    Thank Thee for Thy groaning, sighing,
    For Thy bleeding and Thy dying,
    For that last triumphant cry,
    And shall praise Thee, Lord, on high.

  1. Like the golden sun ascending,
    Breaking through the gloom of night,
    On the earth his glory spending
    So that darkness takes to flight,
    Thus my Jesus from the grave
    And death’s dismal, dreadful cave,
    Rose triumphant Easter morning,
    At the early purple dawning.
  2. Thanks to Thee, O Christ, victorious!
    Thanks to Thee, O Lord of Life!
    Death hath now no power o’er us,
    Thou hast conquered in the strife.
    Thanks because Thou didst arise
    And hast opened paradise!
    None can fully sing the glory
    Of the resurrection story.
  3. Thou hast died for my transgression,
    All my sins on Thee were laid;
    Thou hast won for me salvation,
    On the cross my debt was paid.
    From the grave I shall arise
    And shall meet Thee in the skies.
    Death itself is transitory;
    I shall lift my head in glory.
  4. For the joy Thine advent gave me,
    For Thy holy, precious Word;
    For Thy Baptism, which doth save me,
    For Thy blest Communion board;
    For Thy death, the bitter scorn,
    For Thy resurrection morn,
    Lord, I thank Thee and extol Thee,
    And in heav’n I shall behold Thee.
