1 I must sing for joy at the happy thought,
I belong to Jesus, and He belongs to me;
With His precious blood He my soul hath bought,
I belong to Jesus, and He belongs to me.

Refrain:
I belong to Jesus, blessed, blessed Jesus;
Ev’ry hour His tender smile I see;
I am trusting in His love, ever faithful He will prove;
I belong to Jesus, and He belongs to me.

2 Let the world grow wild, let the storms rise high,
I belong to Jesus, and He belongs to me;
To my trusting soul He is ever night,
I belong to Jesus, and He belongs to me. [Refrain]

3 He is at my side when my soul is tried,
I belong to Jesus, and He belongs to me;
More than brother He, more than friend and guide,
I belong to Jesus, and He belongs to me. [Refrain]

4 He will comfort me when my sorrows come,
I belong to Jesus, and He belongs to me;
He is leading me to His own bright home,
I belong to Jesus, and He belongs to me. [Refrain]
