Mine! what rays of glory bright
Now upon the promise shine!
I have found the Lord my light;
I am His, and He is mine.
Mine, oh mine, mine, oh, mine,
Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior,
I am His, and He is mine!
Mine! the promise often read,
Now in living truth impressed,
Once acknowledged in the head,
Now a fire within the breast.
Mine! the promise cannot change;
Mine! tho’ oft my eyes are dim;
Naught can from His love estrange,
Those who place their trust in Him.
Mine! tho’ oft my hand may fail,
He is strong and holds me fast;
By His blood I shall prevail,
He shall lead me home at last.
Mine! when death the bars shall break,
’Mid those glories all divine.
Satisfied I shall awake,
Clasp His feet, and call Him mine.
