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!
    O this transport all divine!
In a love which cannot cease,
    I 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;
    Firstborn light in gloom decline;
But while God and I shall be,
    I am His, and He is mine.
George Wade Robinson, 1838-77
