I am Thine own, O Christ;
Henceforth entirely Thine;
And life from this glad hour,
New life is mine.

No earthly joy can lure
My quiet soul from Thee:
This deep delight so pure,
Is Heav’n to me.

My joyful song of praise
In sweet content I sing:
To Thee the note I raise,
My king! My king!

I cannot tell the art
By which such bliss is giv’n:
I know Thou hast my heart,
And I—have Heav’n.
