I’m like an autumn leaf

Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall.
(Isaiah 64:6; NLT). 

1. Lord,
I’m like an autumn leaf,
My bones are only dust,
Yet I am yours for evermore,
My God, in whom I trust. 

2. Lord,
I’m like a fragile jar,
My mind is only clay,
Yet you are mine eternally,
My God, who cares each day.

3. Lord,
I’m like a morning mist,
My heart is only dew,
Yet I am yours for evermore,
My God, so great and true.  

4. Lord,
In birth, in life, and death,
My soul remains your home,
For you are mine eternally,
And I am yours alone. 


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



1. We are only dust (Psalm 103:14; NLT).

I am yours (Psalm 119:94; NLT). 

2. We …are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure (2 Corinthians 4:7; NLT).

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

3. They will disappear like the morning mist (Hosea 13:3; NLT). 

Great and marvellous are your works, O Lord God, the Almighty. Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations (Revelation 15:3; NLT). 

4. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing (John 15:8; NIV).

Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them” (John 14:23; NLT).

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