I BEHOLD THE CHRIST IN YOU

Frank B. Whitney (1889-1938)

 

Frank Whitney was the first editor of Daily Word Magazine. Established in 1924, Daily Word, now published in eight languages, has become Unity’s flagship publication. As editor Frank contributed hundreds of poems and inspirational articles to the magazine. This little daily devotional continues to bless countless millions around the world. Two different composers have written music for this poem, Edna L. Gieselman and Bill Provost.

I behold the Christ in you,

Here the life of God I see;

I can see a great peace too,

I can see you whole and free.

 

I behold the Christ in you,

I can see this as you walk;

I see this in all you do,

I can see this as you talk.

 

I behold God's love expressed,

I can see you filled with power;

I can see you ever blessed,

See Christ in you hour by hour.

 

I behold the Christ in you,

I can see that perfect one;

Led by God in all you do,

I can see God's work is done.
