Representative Text

1 Thou, Lord, reign'st in this bosom,
There, there hast thou thy throne,
Thou, thou know'st that I love thee,
Am I not surely thine own?
O Lord, my God,
Am I not surely thine own.

2 Speak, Lord, speak, I implore thee,
Say, say, I shall be thine!
Thou, thou know'st that I love thee,
Say but that thou wilt be mine,
Jesus, my Lord,
Say but that thou wilt be mine.

3 Faith, faith now has embraced thee,
Hope, hope pierces the skies:
Joy, joy now hath o'erwhelm'd me,
On wings of bright glory I rise
Glory, glory,
I am forever thine own.
