I am the Lord’s! O joy beyond expression

1
I am the Lord’s! O joy beyond expression,
  O sweet response to voice of love Divine;
Faith’s joyous “Yes” to the assuring whisper,
  “Fear not! I have redeemed thee; thou art Mine.”
2
I am the Lord’s! It is the glad confession
  Wherewith the Bride recalls the happy day,
When love’s “I will” accepted Him forever,
  “The Lord’s,” to love, to honor and obey.
3
I am the Lord’s! Yet teach me all it meaneth,
  All it involves of love and loyalty,
Of holy service, absolute surrender,
  And unreserved obedience unto Thee.
4
I am the Lord’s! Yes; body, soul, and spirit,
  O seal them irrecoverably Thine;
As Thou, Beloved, in Thy grace and fulness
  Forever and forevermore art mine.

I woke up this morning singing this wonderful hymn.

I am still learning as the Lord teaches me all that means to love Him.

2nd Corinthians 5:14-15 For the Love of Christ constrains us because we have judged this, that One died for all, therefore all died. And He died for all that those who live may no longer live to themselves but to Him who died for them and has been raised..

I am the Lord's!!

I haven't heard this hymn in years.

It was my dear loving wife's dearest testimony and hymn.

She is the Lord's!!

It was placed upon her tombstone at the time of her passing after we were married for one year.

I cannot express the hope I have when I see her standing with the Lord.
