Jesus is Mine
The Savior on the cross is not a mere historical fact—it is so much more. There at the cross is forgiveness for my sins, true peace for my soul, and the unshakeable promise of my eternal home in heaven. There is my Savior! In the darkness of struggle and suffering in this life, my Jesus gives me the comfort of knowing that I have far greater blessings at his cross. In the dismal void of what this life cannot fulfill, my Jesus gives me true peace and contentment. And even in the deepening shadows of death that this world brings, my Jesus strips away the uncertainty and assures me of a greater home yet to come. A powerful melody takes this old hymn text (supplemented with a new verse) and helps it highlight these wonderful blessings—all of which are mine in Christ!
Fade, fade each earthly joy, Jesus is mine! Break ev'ry tender tie, Jesus is mine! Dark is the wilderness, Earth has no resting place, Jesus alone can bless, Jesus is mine!
Tempt not my soul away, Jesus is mine! Here would I ever stay, Jesus is mine! Perishing things of clay, Born but for one brief day, Pass from my heart away, Jesus is mine!
Farewell, ye dreams of night, Jesus is mine! Lost in this dawning light, Jesus is mine! All that my soul has tried, Left but a dismal void, Jesus has satisfied, Jesus is mine!
There at the cross I stand, Jesus is mine! True Son of God and man, Jesus is mine! Grace to forgive my sin, true peace my soul to win, All this I find in him, Jesus is mine!
