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.

We are the Lord's! Oh, what a glorious proclamation! What can we say but "Lord Jesus, we love You!"?
