Meditate on this

Yours forever, God of love!
Hear us from your throne above.
Yours forever may we be
Here and in eternity.

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

Yours forever! Lord of life,
Shield us through our earthly strife.
You, the life, the truth, the way,
Guide us to the realms of day.

Yours forever! Shepherd, save
This your flock that you forgave.
Keep us safe within your care,
Let us all your goodness share.

Yours forever! You our guide,
All our wants by you supplied,
All our sins by your forgiven,
Lead us, Lord, from earth to heaven.
