76*. Thine, Jesus, Thine

by A. Midlane
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.
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.
Thine—ever Thine,
Forever to recline
On love eternal, fixed and sure—
Yes, I am Thine forevermore—
Lord Jesus, Thine.
Then let me live
Continual praise to give
To Thy dear name, my precious Lord,
Henceforth alone beloved, adored;
So let me live—
Till Thou shalt come
And bear me to Thy home,
Forever freed from earthly care,
Eternally Thy love to share—
Lord Jesus, come!

“Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.” (John 17:24)
“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” (Revelation 22:20)
