Trusting Jesus

Full Text

1 My heart belongs to Jesus now, and I'm walking in the light
His loving arms encircle me, and my path is always bright;
I travel onward singing praise, ever standing for the right,
For my heart belongs to Jesus forevermore.

Chorus:
I'm His, He's mine,
We are truly one at last
(praise God,) I'm His, He's (truly) mine,
And He hides my sinful past;
My heart belongs to Jesus now,
And my sinful days are o'er,
And His happy praise my soul shall raise forevermore.

2 He found me bending under sin, and He took away my load,
He held my hand and led me straight to the happy gospel road;
And now I'm going on with Him to the soul's divine abode,
For my heart belongs to Jesus forevermore. [Chorus]

3 Some happy day at heaven's gate my Redeemer I shall see,
And with a smile and words of love, I am sure He'll welcome me;
Then in His love my soul shall rest thru the glad eternity,
For my heart belongs to Jesus forevermore. [Chorus]
