	1. Thine forever, God of Love!
	Hear us from Thy throne above;
	Thine forever may we be
	Here and in eternity!

	2. Thine forever! Oh, how blest
	They who find in Thee their rest!
	Savior, Guardian, heavenly Friend,
	Oh, defend us to the end!

	3. Thine forever, Lord of Life!
	Shield us through our earthly strife.
	Thou, the Life, the Truth, the Way,
	Guide us to the realms of day.

	4. Thine forever! Shepherd, keep
	These Thy frail and trembling sheep
	Safe alone beneath Thy care,
	Let us all Thy goodness share.

	5. Thine forever! Thou our Guide,
	All our wants by Thee supplied,
	All our sins by Thee forgiven;
	Lead us, Lord, from earth to heaven.
