No. 17 Jesus is Mine

Verse 1:
Fade, fade each earthly joy,
Jesus is mine!
Break every tender tie,
Jesus is mine!
Dark is the wilderness,
Earth hath no resting place,
Jesus alone can bless,
Jesus is mine!

Verse 2:
Tempt not my soul away,
Jesus is mine!
Here would I ever stay,
Jesus is mine!
Perishing thing of clay,
Born but for one brief day,
Pass from my heart away,
Jesus is mine!

Verse 3:
Farewell, mortality,
Jesus is mine!
Welcome, eternity,
Jesus is mine!
Welcome, O loved and blest,
Welcome, sweet scenes of rest,
Welcome, my Savior’s breast,
Jesus is mine.
