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; In a love which cannot cease, I am His, and He is mine.
2. Heav’n above is softer blue, Earth around is sweeter green; Something lives in every 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; Since I know, as now I know, I am His, and He is mine.
3. Things that once were wild alarms Cannot now disturb my rest, Closed in everlasting arms, Pillowed on His 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; While He whispers in my ear I am His, and He is mine.
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; But while God and I shall be, I am His, and He is mine.
