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.

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!

მარადიული გრძნობით

მასზე შეყვარებული ,

მადლით ვსუნთქავ სიყვარულს, უფალი რომ მასწავლის

ოჰ , ეს სრული სიმშვიდე ,ღვთაებრივი გზავნილი,

ამ უშრეტ სიყვარლში,

მე მისი ვარ, ის ჩემი

ზეცა მკრთალი ლურჯია ,

მიწა მწვანედ ბიბინებს,

სიცოცხლის ელფერი აქვს დედამიწის კიდურებს

ჩიტები მხიარულობენ,ვარდების რიგს გავყვები ,

მას შემდეგ რაც მას ვიცნობ,მე მისი ვარ ,ის ჩემი

I am His alone. It brings me comfort to know that.

Such a beautiful expression of biblical truths and of the marvellous experience of the new birth and of the confidence and peace consequent to a deepening faith in biblical doctrines of grace, election, and God's sovereignty and faithfulness.

I fear the grand old didactic hymns are rapidly falling out of favor being replaced by mantras with less depth of meaning. I hope I am not being uncharitable. For no particular reason this hymn popped in my head today. A blessed truth.

We were walking part of the SouthWest coast path this morning between Cawsand and Cremyll near where the Pilgrim Fathers set off for America and as we came to a welcoming seat we found that it had been dedicated to a loved one with the following words,' Heaven above is softer blue; Earth: around is sweeter green: Something lives in every hue, Christless .eyes have never seen. It perfectly described the scene before us and our Christian experience.

Unfortunately, we began arguing over the right tune and hastened to the internet as soon as we got home! I was right! Now I can't get it out of my head but who would want to? Lovely moments which enhanced our day.

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.
