Representative Text

1 Life is mine, yes, mine thro’ the blood of the Lamb,
In my Lord I live and He lives in me,
He lives in me;
Faith is mine, yes, mine, for in Him I believe,
And my heart is glad since He made me free,
Since He made me free.

Refrain:
Life is mine, faith is mine, strength is mine,
Love is mine thro’ the blood of the Lamb;
Peace is mine, joy is mine, crown is mine,
Rest is mine thro’ the blood of the Lamb.

2 Strength is mine, yes, mine thro’ the blood of the Lamb,
Tho’ so weak in self, in my Lord I’m strong,
In my Lord I’m strong;
Love is mine, yes, mine, pure and free from my Lord,
I am His alone, and to Him belong,
And to Him belong. [Refrain]

3 Peace is mine, yes, mine thro’ the blood of the Lamb,
Since I came in faith to the cleansing stream,
To the cleansing stream;
Joy is mine, yes, mine, all His joy is mine own,
On my path His light doth forever beam,
Doth forever beam. [Refrain]

4 Crown is mine, yes, mine thro’ the blood of the Lamb,
When no more earth’s toil, and this life’s work done,
This life’s work done;
Rest is mine, yes, mine, the sweet rest of His love,
When the battle’s o’er, and the vict’ry won,
The vict’ry won. [Refrain]
