1 Thine forever, gracious King!
Safe I rest beneath thy wing,
While I hear thy voice divine
Whisper softly, I am thine.

Thine, because thy word has said
That for me thy blood was shed;
Thine, because to thee I came,
Asking mercy in thy name.

2 Thine forever, gracious King!
Now my trusting heart can sing;
Thine forever, praise to thee!
Thou hast paid the debt for me. [Refrain]

3 When the waves like mountains rise,
When the clouds o’erspread the skies,
Still I hear thy voice divine
Whisper softly, I am thine. [Refrain]

4 Thine forever, owned and blest,
Sweetly there my faith I rest;
Thine forever, born of thee,
Heir of immortality. [Refrain]
