924. I Know He's Mine

1 There’s One above all earthly friends
Whose love all earthly love transcends,
It is my Lord and Christ divine,
My Lord because I know He’s mine.

I know He’s mine, this Friend so dear,
He lives with me, He’s ever near;
Ten thousand charms around Him shine,
And, best of all, I know He’s mine.

2 He’s mine because He died for me,
He saved my soul, He set me free;
With joy I worship at His shrine
And cry, “Praise God, I know He’s mine.” [Refrain]

3 He’s mine because He’s in my heart,
And ne’er will I let Him depart;
Just as the branch is to the vine
I’m joined to Christ; I know He’s mine. [Refrain]

4 Someday upon the streets of gold
Mine eyes His glory shall behold,
Then, while His arms around me twine,
I’ll cry for joy, “I know He’s mine.” [Refrain]
