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.

What a beautiful expression of assurance to the child of God!

I've loved Him since my teenage years and He is more precious now than ever.

A verse from this hymn was quoted on our calendar and I just had to look it up.

Thank you for this lovely rendering.

Dear Lord, may my entire being be Yours forevermore. I give my body and soul and spirit to You right now, to love and honor and obey You for the rest of my days. Thank You for accepting me forever. I ask You to teach me all it means to love You as much as You have loved me. Take me completely, I am Yours.

O joy beyond expression! Lord, make us wholly Your own in every way. No one deserves our love as much as You do. Be so romantic and win our hearts completely. Don't stop until You have all of us. We know You'll answer this prayer, dear Lord. Thank You so much, Lord Jesus. Love, Randall
