76*. Thine, Jesus, Thine

4,6,8,8,4.
by A. Midlane
1
Thine, Jesus, Thine,
 
No more this heart of mine
 
Shall seek its joy apart from Thee,
 
The world is crucified to me,
 
And I am Thine.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Galatians 6:14
2
Thine—Thine alone,
 
My joy, my hope, my crown:
 
Now earthly things may fade and die,
 
They charm my soul no more, for I
 
Am Thine alone.
1 Corinthians 7:31; Philippians 3:7-8
3
Thine—ever Thine,
 
Forever to recline
 
On love eternal, fixed and sure—
 
Yes, I am Thine forevermore—
 
Lord Jesus, Thine.
Jeremiah 31:3; John 10:28
4
Then let me live
 
Continual praise to give
 
To Thy dear name, my precious Lord,
 
Henceforth alone beloved, adored;
 
So let me live—
Hebrews 13:15
5
Till Thou shalt come
 
And bear me to Thy home,
 
Forever freed from earthly care,
 
Eternally Thy love to share—
 
Lord Jesus, come!
1 Thessalonians 4:17; John 17:24; Revelation 22:20
