#56: I am His and He is Mine

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Loved with everlasting love, Led by grace that love to know —

Spirit breathing from above, Thou hast taught me it is so!

O this full and perfect peace, O this transport all divine —

In a love which cannot cease, I am His and He is mine; (repeat line).

2

Heav’n above is softer blue, Earth around is sweeter green;

Something lives in ev’ry hue Christless eyes have never seen!

Birds with gladder songs o’erflow, Flow’rs with deeper beauties shine,

Since I know, as now I know, I am His and He is mine; (repeat line).

3

Things that once were wild alarms Cannot now disturb my rest;

Closed in everlasting arms, Pillowed on the loving breast!

O to lie forever here, Doubt and care and self resign,

While He whispers in my ear — I am His and He is mine; (repeat line).

4

His forever only His — Who the Lord and me shall part?

Ah, with what a rest of bliss Christ can fill the loving heart!

Heav’n and earth may fade and flee, Firstborn light in gloom decline,

But while God and I shall be, I am His and he is mine; (repeat line).
