1 To His dear voice I listened,
And to my Lord I came;
He filled my heart with music,
Glad praises to His name.

Refrain:
His grace and lovingkindness,
My song shall ever be;
For I belong to Jesus,
And He belongs to me;
For I belong to Jesus,
And He belongs to me.

2 My Savior’s yoke is easy,
And His commands are sweet;
My joy it is to follow
The prints of His dear feet. [Refrain]

3 And when my heart is troubled,
I come to Him for rest;
He speaketh words of comfort,
While leaning on His breast. [Refrain]

4 When I shall reach the homeland,
My Savior I shall see;
For I belong to Jesus,
And He belongs to me. [Refrain]
