W. Howard Doane (1832–1915)


Over my spi­rit, si­lent­ly mus­ing,
Came a sweet mes­sage, peace­ful, di­vine;
Tranquilly steal­ing, slow­ly re­peat­ing,
I have re­deemed thee, and thou art Mine.


Thou hast re­deemed me, won­der­ful Sav­ior,
Under Thy watch-care still I would be;
Tenderly fold me, lov­ing­ly hold me;
Hiding for­ev­er my soul in Thee.

Rich are the bless­ings Thou art be­stow­ing,
Bountiful Shep­herd, Sav­ior di­vine;
I shall not wea­ry, walk­ing be­side Thee,
Thou hast re­deemed me, my life is Thine.


Green are the pas­tures, cool are the wa­ters,
Where at the noon­tide oft I re­cline;
How shall I thank Thee, how shall I praise Thee?
Thou hast re­deemed me, my life is Thine.
