1 Jesus, thou art mine forever,
Dearer far than earth to me;
Neither life nor death shall sever
Those sweet ties which bind to thee.
2 Thou alone art all my treasure,
Who hast died that I might live;
Thou conferest noblest pleasure,
Who dost all my sins forgive.
3 Brightest gems and fairest flowers
Lose their beauty in thy frown;
Joy and peace, like balmy showers,
In thy smile come gently down. A-men.
4 Lamb of God! I do implore thee,
Guard, support me, lest I fall;
Let me evermore adore thee;
Be my everlasting All.
