Now I Belong to Jesus

Verse 1
  • Jesus my Lord will love me forever,
  • From Him no pow’r of evil can sever;
  • He gave His life to ransom my soul—
  • Now I belong to Him!
  • Now I belong to Jesus,
  • Jesus belongs to me—
  • Not for the years of time alone,
  • But for eternity.
Verse 2
  • Once I was lost in sin’s degradation,
  • Jesus came down to bring me salvation,
  • Lifted me up from sorrow and shame—
  • Now I belong to Him!
Verse 3
  • Joy floods my soul, for Jesus has saved me,
  • Freed me from sin that long had enslaved me;
  • His precious blood He gave to redeem—
  • Now I belong to Him!
