1.  Jesus, Thou art mine forever,

Dearer far than earth to me;

Neither life nor death shall sever

Those sweet ties which bind to Thee.

2.  All were drear to me and lonely

If Thy presence gladdened not;

While I sing to Thee, Thee only,

Mine’s an ever blissful lot.

3.  Thou alone art all my Treasure,

Who hast died that I may live;

Thou conferrest noblest pleasure,

Who dost all my sins forgive.

4.  Brightest gems and fairest flowers

Lose their beauty in Thy frown;

Joy and peace, like balmy showers,

In Thy smile come gently down.

5.  Jesus, Thou art mine forever;

Never suffer me to stray.

Let me in my weakness never

Cast my priceless pearl away.

6.  Lamb of God, I do implore Thee,

Guard, support me, lest I fall.

Let me evermore adore Thee;

Be my everlasting all.
