Representative Text

1. Thro’ scenes of joy or sorrow,
Jesus still is mine;
Thro’ ev’ry new tomorrow,
He will still be mine.

My Savior faileth never;
O how His glories shine,
I’ll sing it out forever,
He is mine, still mine.

2. Thro’ earthly tribulation,
Jesus still is mine;
My strength and consolation,
He is mine, still mine. [Refrain]

3. Tho’ lost, some fleeting treasure,
Jesus still is mine;
With love beyond all measure,
He is mine, still mine. [Refrain]

4. My Shepherd goes before me,
Jesus still is mine;
Beyond the vale, His glory!
He will still be mine. [Refrain]
