Loved with everlasting love

1
Loved with everlasting love,
Led by grace that love to know;
Spirit, breathing from above,
Thou hast taught me it is so.
Oh, this full and perfect peace!
Oh, 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,
Flow’rs with deeper beauties shine,
Since I know, as now I know,
I am His, and He is mine.
3
Things that once were wild alarms
Cannot now disturb my rest;
Closed in everlasting arms,
Pillowed on the loving breast.
Oh, to lie forever here,
Doubt and care and self resign,
While He whispers in my ear,
I am His, and He is mine.
4
His forever, 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.

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 1 John 3:1 Thank You Precious Saviour for Your amazing Love with which You have loved me.

I love, love, love this hymn. It says it all.

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.

He is one sure constant in my life. My Rock, my Redeemer, my Saviour, my all in all and He loves me. Hallelujah!

Oh to live this way all the time. I thank God for these song writers who really knew the Lord in a deep and intimate way. They wrote about their beautiful experiences with the Lord so that we can benefit by these beautiful words. Their is such beautiful Theology in Hymns such as these. May God help us to pray over these words so that we too may learn to live this way. Too many Christians sing thoughtlessly over a Hymn such as this without giving much thought as to the fact that God wants us to truly know HIM in this wonderful way. God help us all to pray earnestly over the words of these wonderful hymns and over HIS wonderful Bible so that we can experience HIM in all HIS fullness Ephesians 3:19.

This hymn about the love of God is sung worldwide. But God's love is demonstrated chiefly by His Son, Jesus Christ, taking away our sins on the cross and dying for us (John 3 verse 16). Born again Christians experience a great hope in the gospel and through whatever life has to throw at them, as the love of God is shed abroad in their hearts by the Holy Spirit who is given unto them ( Romans 5 verse 5).

God's love is completely and infinitely superior to that of mankind. And we demo are our love to God by obeying Him from by keeping His commandments as Jesus Christ is God (John 15 verse 14).

What a sweet hymn this is. Something lives in every hue. This morning as I spent my morning time, I’m so happy that He loved me through the day-to-day supply of grace, and brought me into the church.

Everything we see outside, the blue sky, the green grass... once we see Christ, our sight will not be the same as before. Our God is all around us! He lives in every hue, every color we see. In every living things & in all of our surroundings, there’s something of Christ to be found. Christ is the reality of all things! Lord be so real to us today!

I am His now

Forever I will be His

Nothing can ever separate me from His love!

Thank You, Lord, for paying the full price with Your blood to redeem me for Yourself. I am Thine forever!

It is of the Lord's sovereignty that the Song of Songs is included in the Scriptures. However, some so-called Christians disagree with the inclusion of Song of Songs in the Bible, viewing it as a secular book, not as a sacred one. But in fact Song of Songs is the most sacred of books. In this book the seeker says, "I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine" (6:3). If we did not have Song of Songs, we probably could not have such an expression regarding our relationship with the Lord. The hymn "Loved with everlasting love" has a line in the chorus which says, "I am His, and He is mine." This is a reference to Song of Songs. To say that "I am my beloved's" does not mean that He is the Master possessing us as His servants. It means that we are His love. This relationship is not that between master and slave, but the affectionate relationship between husband and wife. Song of Songs is the most romantic book ever written. Yet this book is concerned with the loving relationship between God and His chosen people. It presents a portrait of the married life of Christ and those who love Him.
