Author: Karl Johann Philipp Spitta; Charles Tamberlaine Astley Hymnal: Common Service Book of the Lutheran Church #410 (1917) Hymnal Title: Common Service Book of the Lutheran Church Lyrics: 1 We are the Lord’s; His all-sufficient merit,
Sealed on the Cross, to us this grace accords;
We are the Lord’s, and all things shall inherit;
Whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.
2 We are the Lord’s; then let us gladly tender
Our souls to Him, in deeds, not empty words;
Let heart and tongue, and life combine to render
No doubtful witness that we are the Lord’s.
3 We are the Lord’s; no darkness brooding o’er us
Can make us tremble, while this star affords
A steady light along the path before us--
Faith’s full assurance that we are the Lord’s.
4 We are the Lord’s; no evil can befall us
In the dread hour of life’s fast loosening cords;
No pangs of death shall even then appall us;
Death we shall vanquish, for we are the Lord’s.
Amen. Topics: The Christian Life Cross and Comfort Languages: English Tune Title: STRENGTH AND STAY
