Lyrics

I belong to Jesus;
I am not my own;
All I have and all I am,
Shall be His alone.

I belong to Jesus;
He is Lord and King,
Reigning in my inmost heart,
Over everything.

I belong to Jesus;
Blessèd, blessèd thought!
With His own most precious blood
Has my soul been bought.

I belong to Jesus;
He has died for me;
I am His and He is mine,
Through eternity.

I belong to Jesus;
He will keep my soul,
When the deathly waters dark
Round about me roll.

I belong to Jesus;
And ere long I’ll stand
With my precious Savior there
In the glory land.
