Thou Dear Redeemer, I am Thine

Thou dear Redeemer, I am Thine

Tune: EAGLEY (Walch)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Thou dear Redeemer, I am Thine,
O what amazing bliss!
Thy grace has taught my lips to speak
A language such as thins!

2 To humble, glad surrender now
Thou hast my will inclined;
O Master, Lord, about my heart
Thy love-wrought fetters bind.

3 For ever and for ever Thine,
Eternally allied
To Him who bought me by His blood,
To Jesus crucified.

4 My very soul is hushed to rest
As at Thy feet I bow;
Let heaven and earth alike behold
Thy seal upon me now.

5 Yet never in succeeding days
My hope or rest shall be
Upon the sweetly solemn words
My lips have breathed to Thee.

6 ‘Tis on Thine own eternal oath
My spirit shall recline,
For Thou, O blessèd One, to me
Hast whispered, “Thou art Mine.”
