Published in 2 hymnals
1 What, ye ask me, is my prize? What the secret to be wise? What the wealth I value most? What the Name wherein I boast? Jesus, Jesus, Jesus Christ, the Crucified. 2 Who the ground of my belief? Who from guilt doth give relief? Who my ransom once hath been? Who forgiveth all my sin? Jesus, Jesus, Jesus Christ, the Crucified. 3 Who doth comfort me in woe? Who protect me from my foe? Who revives my fainting soul? Who doth heal and make me whole? Jesus, Jesus, Jesus Christ, the Crucified. 4 Who by death hath conquered death? Who receives my parting breath? Who can grant me endless rest? Who enrolls me 'mid the blest? Jesus, Jesus, Jesus Christ, the Crucified.
