Thine for­ev­er! God of love,
Hear us from Thy throne above;
Thine for­ev­er may we be
Here and in eter­ni­ty.

Thine for­ev­er! Lord of life,
Shield us through our earth­ly strife;
Thou, the Life, the Truth, the Way,
Guide us to the realms of day.

Thine for­ev­er! O how blest
They who find in Thee their rest!
Savior, guard­ian, hea­ven­ly friend,
O def­end us to the end.

Thine for­ev­er! Sav­ior, keep
These Thy frail and tremb­ling sheep,
Safe alone be­neath Thy care,
Let us all Thy good­ness share.

Thine for­ev­er in that day
When the world shall pass away;
When the trum­pet note shall sound,
And the na­tions un­der­ground

Shall the aw­ful sum­mons hear,
Which pro­claims the judg­ment near.
Thine for­ev­er, ’neath Thy wings
Hide and save us, King of kings.

Thine for­ev­er! Thou our guide,
All our wants by Thee sup­plied,
All our sins by Thee for­giv­en,
Lead by Thee from earth to Hea­ven.
