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.

To be loved with an everlasting love. And, I believe because He has taught us it is so. To rest in Him. Suddenly verse 2 just falls into place and is so real. The things of the world just fade away and is secondary to the things of Christ. Things that once were wild alarms or triggers cannot disturb our rest because verse three is living and real. Who can separate us from the Lord? While God and I shall be, I am His and He is mine. This hymn opens the ecstasy in just loving the Lord. So long as God is God and I am me... I am His and He is mine. HALLELUJAH!

I am a young person with a lot of hope, dream, and ambition. One day the Lord came and dealt with my situation.

Everthing change abruptly, until I confess that all my hope, dreams, and ambition is just a piece of vanity. Only on Him we should settle our hope, dream, ambition. Only in Christ we found a perfect peace and rest.
