I belong to you

My beloved is mine and I am his
(Song of Songs 2:16; NIV).

1. I belong to you, Lord God,
And you belong to me.

2. Whatever hardships I must face,
And though I long to flee,

3. Help me to learn from everything,
And then to start anew,

4. For you belong to me, Lord God,
And I belong to you.

No power in the sky above or in the earth below – indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:39; NLT).


1. You and I both belong to God (Job 33:6; NLT).

My heart may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever (Psalm 73:26; NLT).

2. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

Lord, see my anguish! My heart is broken and my soul despairs (Lamentations 1:20; NLT).

Then I realised that my heart was bitter, and I was all torn up inside. I was so foolish and ignorant – I must have seemed like a senseless animal to you. Yet I still belong to you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel (Psalm 73:21-24; NLT).

3. Come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls (Matthew 11:28-9; NLT).

Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the Lord (Lamentations 3:40; KJV).

4. God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever (Psalm 73:26; NLT).

I still belong to you (Psalm 73:23; NLT).

  • A lovely timely word of encouragement this morning Ruth, thank you sister. Lately I have been struggling to manage stuff, my brain tumours even though they have not killed me they have weakened my memory and thinking considerably. Romans 8:39 is always good to hear, especially in these days. God bless you sister.
    I am not forgetting your appointment tomorrow!👍

    • Dear Alan, I’m always so glad if anything helps you, even if it’s just a tiny bit. Dealing with the ongoing consequences of cancer is a big deal, which I think people don’t always realise, so I feel for you. It’s very hard to have our faculties of mind and body reduced, isn’t it? Meanwhile, thank you so much for remembering about my appointment tomorrow – that means a lot to me. May God bless you all, and especially Susan. Once the funeral is over, that’s when our deepest grief begins XXXXXX
