1 Joy fills my soul today,
Life seems so bright and gay,
No cause to murmur, to fret, or repine.
Gone is my load of sin,
Jesus now dwells within,
Blest the assurance that Jesus is mine.

Mine when the burdens press,
Mine when in deep distress,
Mine when the powers of evil combine.
Having my Lord and King,
I fear not anything,
Now and eternally, Jesus is Mine.

2 E’er since He came to me
Lovingly, tenderly,
Flooding my soul with His presence divine,
Old things have pass’d away,
peaceful my life alway,
Nothing shall harm me for Jesus is mine. [Chorus]

3 When comes life’s setting sun,
When the long race is run,
When in His presence redeem’d I shall shine,
Joy then will know no bounds,
Above all other sounds,
I’ll shout in ecstasy, “Jesus is mine!” [Chorus]
