Sunday's Hymn: I Belong to Jesus

I belong to Jesus;
I am not my own;
All I have and all I am,
Shall be his alone.

I belong to Jesus;
He is Lord and King,
Reigning in my inmost heart,
Over ev'rything.

I belong to Jesus;
Blessed, blessed thought!
With his own most precious blood
Has my soul been bought.

I belong to Jesus;
He has died for me;
I am his and he is mine,
Through eternity.

I belong to Jesus;
He will keep my soul,
When the deathly waters dark
Round about me roll.

I belong to Jesus;
And ere long I'll stand
With my precious Saviour there
In the glory land.

M. Fraser
Dedication, M.A. Sea

I like this hymn! Is it in the Trinity Hymnal? I'll have to go check.

I'm listening to the tune right now. I think we should sing it at church, don't you?

This hymn is new to me but reminds me of one that says, "Now I belong to Jesus, Jesus belongs to me; Not for the years of time alone, but for eternity."

Yes, it is in the Trinity hymnal, as you discovered, Kim. And I do think we should sing it at church...even though its marked a "children's hymn." We are all children of God, are we not?

The reason I chose it is that I thought it expressed the idea of Christ's ownership of us that was preached on at church does the hymn you mention, Rosemary. I love the security of being His!

This is exactly the hymn I was thinking of during church on Sunday... I'm sending the text to the Fullers right now via cut copy and paste from your blog. Thanks. :-)
