13994. Thine, Lord, Forever!

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

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

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

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

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