JESUS my Lord will love me forever,

From Him no power of evil can sever,

He gave His life to ransom my soul,

Now I belong to Him;

Now I belong to Jesus,

Jesus belongs to me,

Not for the years of time alone,

But for eternity.


Once I was lost in sin’s degradation,

Jesus came down to bring me salvation,

Lifted me up from sorrow and shame,

Now I belong to Him;


Joy floods my soul for Jesus has saved me,

Freed me from sin that long had enslaved me,

His precious blood He gave to redeem,

Now I belong to Him;
