1 My heart belongs to Jesus, I’ll serve no other King,
Since I have felt redeeming blood a new song I can sing—
His love is rich and bountiful His pardon full and free,
My heart belongs to Him who cares and that’s enough for me.

Refrain:
My heart belongs to Jesus, He died to set me free,
No other King could pay the debt, a sacrifice for me,
His love is rich and bountiful His pardon full and free,
My heart belongs to Him who cares and that’s enough for me.

2 My heart belongs to Jesus He only has control,
No darts of Satan e’er can pierce the armor of my soul,
In every battle day by day, amid the din and strife,
He is my everlasting strength a strong-hold for my life. [Refrain]

3 My heart belongs to Jesus, why should I fear to go,
The way is plain He leadeth me against the haughty foe
And so I take my stand for Him forever to be true,
Thro’ faith in Him performing tasks that He would have me do. [Refrain]
