1 I was found by the One who sought me,
I belong to the One who bought me,
I will follow the One who taught me,
Lord Jesus I am glad I am Thine.

Refrain:
I am glad, so glad,
Lord Jesus I am glad I am Thine;
I am glad, so glad,
Lord Jesus I am glad I am Thine.

2 Yea, to be Thy peculiar treasure,
And to live but to give Thee pleasure,
For Thy love is beyond all measure,
Lord Jesus I am glad I am Thine. [Refrain]

3 When brave warriors are round me falling,
When swift death is all hearts appalling,
My security then recalling,
Lord Jesus I am glad I am Thine. [Refrain]

4 On all sides with sore grief surrounding,
And the world with sad cries resounding,
From my heart thro’ Thy grace abounding,
Lord Jesus I am glad I am Thine. [Refrain]

5 When to service Thy voice invites me,
And the work Thou hast giv’n delights me;
As a glimpse of Thy smile requites me,
Lord Jesus I am glad I am Thine. [Refrain]
