602. I Am His, and He Is Mine

1 Loved with everlasting love, led by grace that love to know,
Spirit, breathing from above, you hast taught me it is so:
O twhat full and perfect peace, joy and wonder all divine!
In a love which cannot cease, I am his, and he is mine.
In a love which cannot cease, I am his, and he is mine.

2 Heaven above is softer blue, earth around is richer green;
something lives in every hue Christless eyes have never seen:
songs of birds in sweetness grow, flowers with deeper 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 His forever, his alone! Who the Lord from me shall part?
With what joy and peace unknown Christ can fill the loving heart!
Heaven and earth may pass away, sun and stars in gloom decline,
but of Christ I still shall say: "I am his, and he is mine."
but of Christ I still shall say: "I am his, and he is mine."
