My Sav­ior, I am Thine
By ev­er­last­ing bands;
My name, my heart I would re­sign,
My soul is in Thy hands.

To Thee I still would cleave
With ever grow­ing zeal;
Let mill­ions tempt me Christ to leave,
They ne­ver shall pre­vail.

His Spir­it shall unite
My soul to Him, my head,
Conform me to His im­age bright,
Teach me His path to tread.

Death will my soul di­vide
From this abode of clay;
But love shall keep me near His side
Thro’ all the gloomy way.

Since Christ and I are one,
There’s no­thing else to fear.
If He in Heav’n hath fixed His throne,
He’ll fix His mem­bers there.
