426. Yours Forever, God of Love

1 Yours forever, God of love!
Hear us from your throne above;
Yours forever may we be
Here and in eternity!

2 Yours forever, oh, how blest
They who find in you their rest!
Savior, Guardian, heav'nly Friend,
Oh, defend us to the end.

3 Yours forever, Lord of life!
Shield us through our earthly strife.
You, the Life, the Truth, the Way,
Guide us to the realms of day.

4 Yours forever! Shepherd, keep
All your weak and trembling sheep
Safely in your tender care;
Let us all your goodness share.

5 Yours forever! You our guide,
All our needs by you supplied,
All our sins by you forgiv'n,
Lead us, Lord, from earth to heav'n.
