1 Yours for ever! God of love,
hear us from your throne above;
yours for ever let us be,
here and in eternity.

2 Yours for ever! Lord of life,
shield us through our earthly strife;
Christ the life, the truth, the way:
guide us to the realms of day.

3 Yours for ever! O, how blessed
those who find in you their rest!
Saviour, Guardian, heavenly Friend:
O defend us to the end.

4 Yours for ever! You our guide;
all our needs by you supplied,
all our sins by you forgiven:
lead us, Lord, from earth to heaven.
