703. Loved with Everlasting Love

1 Loved with everlasting love,
drawn by grace that love to know,
Spirit went from Christ above,
thou dost witness it is so.
O this full and precious peace
from his presence all divine;
in a love that cannot cease,
I am his and he is mine;
in a love that cannot cease,
I am his and he is mine.

2 Heav'n above is deeper blue,
earth around is sweeter green,
that which glows in every hue
Christ-less eyes have never seen.
Birds in song his glories show,
flow'rs with richer beauties shine
since I know, as now I know,
I am his and he is mine;
since I know, as now I know,
I am his and he is mine.

3 Taste the goodness of the Lord:
welcomed home to his embrace,
all his love as blood out-poured
seals the pardon of his grace.
Can I doubt his love for me,
when I trace that love's design?
By the cross of Calvary
I am his and he is mine.
By the cross of Calvary
I am his and he is mine.

4 His forever, only his -
who the Lord and me shall part?
Ah, with what a rest of bliss
Christ can fill the loving heart.
Heav'n and earth may fade and flee,
first-born light in gloom decline,
but while God and I shall be,
I am his and he is mine;
but while God and I shall be,
I am his and he is mine.
