256. 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, save
This your flock that you forgave.
Keep us safe within your care,
Let us all your goodness share.

5 Yours forever! You our guide,
All our wants by you supplied,
All our sins by you forgiven,
Lead us, Lord, from earth to heaven.
