My dear Lord hath my heart, and I have His,

For He has gifted me with all I have;

In Him my hope of all the future is,

Through Him I know Eternity is safe.

Upon a cross He washed away my sin,

With sacrificial blood so freely shed,

I offer praise and honour unto Him;

Before His throne one day I’ll bow my head.


His heart has loved me since the start of time,

He watched as in my mother’s womb I grew;

My heart partakes of His life-giving wine;

He shepherds me in everything I do.


Nothing so significant as this—

My dear Lord hath my heart, and I have His!
