Representative Text

1. Sweet assurance, Thou hast sealed me
With Thy precious blood divine;
And I know, for Thou hast told me,
I in life or death am Thine.

Refrain
Sweet assurance, O my Savior,
How it cheers this heart of mine!
While Thy loving Spirit whispers,
I in life or death am Thine.

2. Perfect peace, no fear alarms me,
Still the blessèd thought is mine;
Though my days be few or many,
I in life or death am Thine. [Refrain]

3. Death is but a bright transition,
From a world where joys decline,
To the realm of life eternal,
Where Thy endless glories shine. [Refrain]

4. Welcome then the vale and shadow,
Faith, unfalt’ring trust, is mine;
Thro’ the gloom Thy hand will lead me,
I in life or death am Thine. [Refrain]
