Representative Text

1 Not my own, for Jesus bought me,
Saw me wandering and sought me;
To his fold in mercy brought me,
Not my own, but his!

Refrain:
Not my own, but Christ’s forever,
Nothing him from me shall sever
He will leave me, never, never!
Not my own, but his!

2 Not my own, the shepherd found me
Put his tender arms around me;
With his loving kindness crowned me,
Not my own, but his! [Refrain]

3 Not my own, my pilot guides me
Watches o’er what’er betides me;
Shelter from the storm provides me,
Not my own, but his! [Refrain]
