Christ is Mine

Representative Text

1 Sing I will and sing I must,
Christ, the Lord is mine;
In His mercy I will trust,
Trust His pow'r divine.

Chorus:
Christ is mine, yes, Christ is mine,
Christ, the Lord is mine.
Christ is mine, yes, Christ is mine,
Jesus Christ is mine.

2 I will tell each saddened heart,
Christ, the Lord is mine;
If from sin you now depart
Christ will then be thine. [Chorus]

3 Songs of joy my heart doth sing,
Christ, the Lord is mine;
To His cross my all I bring,
All to Christ resign. [Chorus]

4 I will sing for evermore,
Christ, the Lord is mine;
Praise His name, His cross adore;
'Tis a joy sublime. [Chorus]
