Hymn-ful Sundays! "My God, I am thine"

This week's hymn is another by Charles Wesley. 

My God, I am thine,
What a comfort divine,
What a blessing to know that my Jesus is mine!
In the heavenly Lamb
Thrice happy I am,
And my heart it doth dance at the sound of his name.

True pleasures abound
In the rapturous sound;
And whoever hath found it hath paradise found:
My Jesus to know,
And feel his blood flow,
'Tis life everlasting, 'tis heaven below.

Yet onward I haste
To the heavenly feast:
That, that is the fulness; but this is the taste!
And this I shall prove,
Till with joy I remove
To the heaven of heavens in Jesus's love.
-Charles Wesley

From the beginning of Christianity our comfort has been in knowing Jesus, and in knowing that God is for us. This is the source of our joy, knowing Jesus and everlasting life through him; to be able to taste even the tiniest bit of heaven's feast through the love of Christ.

Be blessed and shine with joy!
