Loved with everlasting love

MHB 443

1.LOVED with everlasting love,
Led by grace that love to know;
Spirit, breathing from above,
Thou hast taught me It is so.
O this full and perfect peace I
0 this transport all divine!
In a love which cannot cease
1 am His, and He is mine.

2.Heaven above is softer blue,
Earth around Is sweeter green;
Something lives in every hue,
Christless eyes have never seen:
Birds with gladder songs o'erflow,
Flowers with deeper beauties shine,
Since I know, as now I know,
I am His, and He is mine.

3.His for ever, only His :
Who the Lord and me shall part?
Ah, with what a rest of bliss
Christ can fill the loving heart
Heaven and earth may fade and flee,
First-born light in gloom decline;
But, while God and I shall be,
I am His, and He is mine.
