Thine, Lord, for­ev­er,
Purchased by blood di­vine;
Rescued and saved by Thee,
Lord, I am Thine.

Thine, Lord, for­ev­er,
Thro’ storm and tem­pest wild;
Trusting con­fid­ing­ly,
I am Thy child.

Thine, Lord, for­ev­er,
Cheered by Thy pre­cious word;
Thro’ dark­ness, doubts and fears,
Thine, Thine, O Lord.

Thine, Lord, for­ev­er,
Tho’ death shall lay me low;
E’en in that dread­ful hour,
Thine, Lord, I know.

Thine, Lord, for­ev­er,
When safe be­fore Thy throne
I stand for­ev­er­more,
Thine, Thine alone.
